Harmel from Queens, NY

I'm an aspiring photographer. W/ a laptop, I'll be able to build a career!

I eventually want to own my own studio, but for now I don't have space on my phone to store photos. A basic laptop will make a huge difference.


I am an aspiring photographer who wishes and hopes to use my photo editing talents to pursue a career in photography.

My goals are to eventually own my own studio where I'll be able to create warm, heartfelt experiences for my clients. My plans are to teach myself the basic operations of photography through post secondary education. My ambitions are to be able to capture moments society take for granted with my photos.

Not having a laptop is my biggest disadvantage. I need to save my work on a laptop because I don't have sufficient space on my phone. It also will allow me to be updated with the latest technology or applications related to photography.

This need will grant me the opportunity to build a professional portfolio and financial stability through freelance work.

PO Rivera


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

Harmel has been under my supervisor through the Department of Probation for about one year. I have been working with him to stay on the right path and have watched him transition into a better individual. He has struggled with finding employment due to his criminal record. While he has been on probation, he has not obtained any new arrests or has had any issues. Harmel has express to me his passion for photography and the need of securing a laptop. Despite his struggles he remains proactive and optimistic.
