Colombia from Queens, NY

I moved to the US four years ago; I want to learn English to find a better job!

Some day I hope to bring my family to the US; in the meantime, I need to pay for tuition and books to learn English so I can find better work soon.

My need and situation

I am 24 years old. I've been in the United States of America for four years. I would like to learn English to get a better job.

My goals are to improve myself, learn English and one day be able to bring my mother and little brother to this country. I would also like to get a job that allows me to support them.

I need to be able to pay for school and buy the necessary books to learn English. This will help guide me.

Meeting this need will help me because it will open a lot of doors for my future. I will also be able to find a better job which will change so much in my life.
