Chris from Staten Island, New York

I'm enrolled in High School Equivalency; I need a laptop to keep up.

Once I finish my HSE, I want to continue on to a college degree at LaGuardia College. A laptop will help me keep up with classwork!

My need and situation

I am a 24 year old student at La Guardia College. I am currently enrolled in their High school equivalency program. I intend to continue on to get a degree in business.

My goals are to complete my classes at LaGuardia College and then go on to obtain my degree. I plan to one day start my own business. I would like t o be able to one day be able to hire young adults who are seeking employment.

I need a laptop to keep up with my class assignments. The good thing about having a laptop is that it would enhance my ability to do research for my major once I obtain my diploma in one month.

Meeting this need will help me because I am scheduled to graduate from the HSE diploma program in a month. Then I will be enrolling into the mainstream classes to pursue my degree in business.

I have known Chris for 1.5 years. He is a hard working young man determined to obtain his degree in business. I first met Chris when he became a member of a mentoring program on Staten Island. In the past year and a half I have witness his growth and positive actions to make a better life for himself. Chris would achieve his goals with the help that he needs to make his goals a reality.
