Andrew from Brooklyn, NY

I've been given a second chance; I could use help. A laptop will help me get my GED!

I'm working hard to find work & get my GED so I can go to college. With a laptop I'll be able to focus on these things-- I live far from the library.


I am a young 20 year old male, who has been given a second chance in life. I am currently working on obtaining my GED and currently trying to look for employment. I am participating in a job readiness program with helps me with interviews and resume help.

My goals are to find employment to help cover funds for my education. My second goal is to continue to pursue my GED diploma. College is my biggest goal in my life, and I know I will attend one day.

My current need is that I cannot work at home and have to travel to a library to use a computer. With a laptop, I can study and finish my course for my GED, while also look for suitable employment.

Meeting this need will help me because I can stay at home and study. I have more opportunities to work on my practice exams and also work alone in a quiet environment. This will help me concentrate more and achieve my goals in life.
