Victoria from Tucson, Arizona

A basic laptop will help me complete my training for a career in healthcare!

To complete my certification program for Medical Code and Billing, being able to complete online work is essential.

My need and situation

I am a 32-year-old single mother of two young daughters that I provide for on my own. I was a preschool teacher for two years until I was determined to change my career path to better the lives for my little family.

My goals are to better support my family and to build a good future for them. I am currently in the process of going back to school for Medical Code and Billing. This field will allow me to make the income I need and to have a stable career.

I need a laptop to help me succeed in my new career goals. For the training that I want to attend for Medical Code and Billing, there will be a lot of online work I will have to complete and scheduled deadlines.

Meeting this need will help me because it will allow me to keep up with my studies and to better manage my life. You need a computer for everything in our world today and with the career I want to get into, a laptop is a required necessity.
