John from New York, NY

Working on my music helps me manage stress and move forward.

If I had equipment for my home studio, I could keep myself positively focused while I look for work and help my family.

My need and situation

I am a 24 year old. I am looking for a full-time job. My main hobby and interest is making music.

Right now, I am focused on making positive changes in my life, and bettering my situation. Supporting my family is always a main goal. I am the oldest child, and often take responsibility for the well-being of my family, which can be stressful. It is really helpful for me to have the ability to make music. It gives me joy and energy to keep moving forward.

I need equipment for my studio, including microphone and speakers.

Meeting this need will help me because focusing on my music will keep me out of trouble. It will allow me to pursue one of my main goals and passions.
