Kendahl from San Francisco, CA

I want to work in the tech industry. Just a small amount of tuition will help me launch my career!

I want to enter a career that will allow me to support my daughter. With your help, I can jump-start my career by attending a coding boot-camp.

My need and situation

I truly have a passion for technology hardware, coding and helping people. The excitement and joy of taking something apart and programming a program that knows absolutely nothing only that of which has been entered and getting response from it is so fun. And wanting to make a difference in others is what i am passionate about.

My goals, moving forward: I most recently passed my GED January 13, 2017! I also completed a program called Mission Techies December 16, 2016 where I got exposed to careers in Information Technology. I plan on going to EXCEL UCSF internship this summer and take classes to further my learning coding and majoring computer science one day at San Francisco Community College as well (CCSF). I know the road might be hard but I am responsible enough to finish this goal.

I need to pay for the tuition for the program and transportation, which comes up to about $700.00.

This need will help me continue to succeed so I can have a better career for my kids and my future. I will appreciate your donations moving forward and I will follow up with you about my progress into the Excel UCSF Program in San Francisco.
