Christina from Staten Island, N.Y

I'm determined to move my family forward. With a laptop, I can access the resources to do so.

A laptop will help me find work, continue my education, and provide a better life for my three children.

My need and situation

I am a 24-year-old mother of three small children. I have been trying to obtain employment after the birth of my 8 month old daughter. I aspire to become a nurse's assistance.

My goals are to be successful in the field of my choice. My plans are to work hard and save money to buy a house for me and my children. My ambitions are to one day be independent financially.

I need a laptop which would assist in my navigating the websites to seek employment. Also once I have secured employment I could return to school to take up the classes needed to become a nurse's assistant. A laptop would also help me with my class work.

Meeting this need will help me because I am currently struggling to take care of my children and cannot afford to purchase any expensive items. Getting this need fulfilled will help me with surfing the web for jobs and class work once I get into school.

I have known Christina for over six months and she has shown to be a very determined young lady. She has overcome many obstacles placed in her path and has not given up. Christina wants to very much be the best mother to her children that she can be. With any support she could become a very valuable citizen to society and a very good mother and provider to her children.
