Manny from Chicago, IL

I'm 19 with a dream of working in the video game industry. A laptop will help me succeed.

I'm in need of a laptop to help me with completing my academic goals as I don't have regular access to a computer.

My need and situation

I'm 19 years old and currently stay in a shelter. I currently attend classes at the Center for Changing Lives in Chicago.

My goal is to get into the video game industry. My plan for this is to go into the Job Corp after the the CCL, then after that college to get as much computer experience as possible before I try to get into the video game industry. As a backup, I will use the office skills I learned in my CCL course to get an admin assistant job.

I'm in need of a laptop to help me with completing my academic goals as I don't have regular access to a computer.

This meeting will help me move forward because it will hopefully provide me a laptop to help me get through the second part of the CCL course and therefore help me go on to the rest of my academic goals.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Manny fund this need.

I have been working with Michael for about a month. I know a laptop would be a great resource for Manny as he would be able to complete the program successfully, being able to study outside of class.
