Montana from Chicago, IL

Young student working to get my life back on track! I need bus passes to get to class

I want to get my GED and continue my education. I need bus passes to get to my morning IT classes, afternoon GED classes and back home!


I am a young woman trying to get my life back on track. I dropped out of high school because of bullying, and now I want to continue my education and better myself.

My goals are to get my GED and complete my IT classes so that I can transfer to Northwestern University for a Bachelor's Degree. I hope to be able to give back to my family and my community through my new knowledge and skills.

I need bus passes to get between my IT classes in the morning and my GED classes in the afternoon. I have already enrolled in both classes and can't wait to start learning.

Meeting this need will help me because having reliable transportation would allow me to travel quickly to my classes so I can graduate on time. I would be ecstatic to not have to worry about transportation costs while I'm in school.

Validated by Kayla from Center for Changing Lives (What does this mean?)

I met Montana through Center for Changing Lives' CompTIA A+ Certification program. In 6 weeks, participants will complete their IT training and take an exam for their A+ license, enabling them to work in the IT field of their choice. In addition to taking this class, Montana is also enrolled in GED classes at a local community college. She's putting in double time to reach her education goals, and receiving bus passes would make her feel more confident that she will be able to attend class every day. Montana is smart, dedicated, and honest, and I can't wait to see where she goes next.
