Turning my life around; a laptop will let me apply & go to school for Real Estate

Between my internship and probation I can't consistently use the library. A laptop will let me use the rest of my day to start a career!


I am 39 years old and currently on Probation. I am trying to turn my life around by doing the right thing. I attend a job readiness program and was recently hired as an intern which doesn't pay me much but I'm grateful for the opportunity. I want to enroll in Real Estate School but I don't have access to a computer to search and apply for employment on my own time because I'm either at work, visiting my Probation Officer or going to court.

My goals are to go back to school to study Real Estate. I do not have access to a computer at my job, and my schedule is very hectic with all my legal issues. My ambitions are to better my life and stay focused on getting my life back on track.

I need a laptop as it will make it easier to complete online classes for Real Estate School at home. My commute to work is about an hour long everyday. I work from 12pm-8pm and then I go to bible studies from 8:30pm-9:15pm. Therefore, I don't have much time during the day to go to the library to do any research or complete online courses to help further my education. I also have a prepaid cellular phone which doesn't allow me to use much internet service.

Meeting this need will allow me to apply for online classes for Real Estate School. Also, I can apply for better jobs as well as be able to edit my resume as needed. This will also keep me out of trouble.

PO Rivera


Validated by PO Rivera from NYC Department of Probation (What does this mean?)

I am Lyndsey's Probation Officer. She's very bright and has been doing well with staying away from any issues. Lyndsey has expressed to me that she just gained a part-time employment as an intern. She wants to become a Real Estate Agent, but doesn't have the time to research and apply. She stated she wants to save for a laptop but can't because she doesn't make much at this new job and has a lot of legal fines. If Lyndsey is granted a laptop she'll have a greater chance to make a better life for herself.
