John from Brooklyn, NY

I've got big dreams as an artist. A laptop will let me succeed in school and life!

Despite a tough start I'm studying hard and building a career. A laptop of my own will let me keep up with school and pursue my dreams.


I am a 21 year old male from East NY Brooklyn working on improving myself for my future. My ambitions motivate me in life.

My many goals are to continue and graduate from Borough of Manhattan Community College and gain my Associate's in Graphic Design. I am also a hip hop rapper who has perfected my craft in many ways and part of an underground hip hop group with local friend sin my neighborhood. My ambitions are to see my dreams come true and become the person I wanted to be since I was a teenager.

I need a laptop for educational and personal work. My college does have computer available but I can only use it for a certain period of time and then traveling back and forth to rent one takes a lot of time.

Meeting this need will help me because I can manage both my college work and use it for my hip hop career in editing, producing music, writing lyrics, and organizing my time and work.
