My need and situation
I am a 22-year-old young man who is unemployed and currently on probation. I am smart; I just messed up along the way. I'm trying to better myself and learn from my past while I'm on probation.
My goals are to go to college and get my master's degree in astrophysics. After I complete college I would like to come back to NYC and set up basketball tournaments for underprivileged children.
Right now I need the money to pay for driving lessons, so I could get a job to help pay for college. Once I'm working, I'll be able to cover my living expenses while earning my degree.
Meeting this need will help me, because if I have it I will be able to get a good job, that will help me pay for school and, help me to get one step closer to my dream job.
