Shymale from Brooklyn, New York

My family lost almost everything in a fire. I need a laptop to keep up with work!

I want to be a mechanic; I need a laptop to keep up with certifications & find work. The laptop will also help my niece and nephew, with schoolwork.

My need and situation

I am a 27 year old with no children. I am very family oriented and love to spend time with mine. Recently, my family and I lost everything in a house fire. We were able to save some of or belongings, but not very many. We are living each day as it comes and grateful to be alive.

My goals are to become as successful as I can be in this life. I am currently looking for a better career opportunity that's in the field of car mechanics. I plan to get more certifications so that I am able to obtain a job that will secure me and my family for a lifetime.

I am in need of a laptop as I lost mine in the house fire. I need this for work and to also complete other certifications. Also, my niece and nephew reside in the house with my family as well. They will be attending school soon and thought that they could share this laptop with me so they can stay on top of their assignments.

Meeting this need will help me because I have to be strong for my family. I am trying my best to give what I can give and replace the things that were lost. I am more grateful that material things were lost rather than my family. If this need is met, I will be able to help better not only myself, but my family as well.

I have known Shymale for about 6 months and he has been compliant with his terms and condition of his probation. Shymale always seems to want to help others in any kind of way possible. One this that inspires me about Shymale is the fact that he is family oriented and spends a lot of time with them. Also, he loves working on his car and fixing it to the best of his ability. Shymale wants to obtain certifications where he can put his skills to use.
