Tairiq from Staten Island, New York

I'm ready to support myself independently. I just need the right attire to work as a residential aid.

I need to purchase uniforms for a residential aide position and business attire for job interviews.


I am an 18 year old who has applied to become a residential aide. I would like very much to help those who are in need of help like the mentally challenged population.

My goal is to secure a job in the social service area and also to become a professional boxer. My plan is to open up a physical training center for young people in my community. My ambition is to prevent young adults and youth from experiencing the penal system.

I need to purchase uniforms for the residential aide position and interview attire for job interviews.

Meeting this need will help me because I will have the proper attire required to accept the residential aide position if offered and have the proper attire required for other interviews.

I have been working to assist Tairiq for the last five months and he has been both reliable and dependable. He has also proven that he is determined to meet his goals head on. He will be successful in what ever field he chooses. Mr. Matthews would do well once he has secured employment and returns to his passion for assisting youth in his community.
