Lisa from Chicago, IL

I'm a mother building business skills. A computer and bed will keep me moving up!

I'm working towards a new career to support myself and my son. A computer will help me study and hone my new skills, and a bed will keep me healthy!

My need and situation

I am a 30-year-old woman and mother of a teenage son. I've been in the massage therapist field for ten years, but I want to change directions and take a business route.

My goals are to someday have my own business, get a more consistent income, own my own home, and see my son become a successful man.

I need a desktop computer, Microsoft, and a mattress. Each of these items is essential for me, because as I change directions with my career I want to one day have an office in which I can further advance my computer skills. As for the mattress, I experience chronic health issues, and the mattress I currently own is no longer in shape and is affecting my day to day life.

Meeting this need will help me because I can have more time at home practicing these computer skills and gaining more experience. Meeting the need of the mattress will not only let me function better, but help me perform at a better capacity.
