Oke from Staten Island, New York

I'm ready to go to college! All I need is a laptop to thrive in school.

A laptop will let me complete assignments, and will also help me find part-time work as I earn my degree.


I am a 18-year-old high school student and will be graduating in January of 2017. I want to go to college right after graduation and join the workforce.

My goals are to graduate from college and help support my family and secure a career which would allow me to be both economically stable and socially adaptable.

I need a laptop for college and I would also use it for employment search.

Meeting this need will help me because when I enroll into college I could use it for notes, research and projects. Meeting this need would assist me in reaching my goals to get a college degree and find employment.
