Tee from Staten Island, New York

I want to finish my GED & find work. I need a laptop to utilize online resources!

The epidemic online resources a necessity. I need a laptop so I can take practice tests, study, and use online career sites to move forward.

Overview

I am a 23 year old single mother of 2. At this time I am unemployed due to the stay at home situation. I would like very much to be able to take advantage of the online employment and educational opportunities being provided at this time.

My goals are to obtain my High school equivalency diploma which would make me more marketable in the employment field. I also would eventually like to be able to provide a better environment for my children once I obtain diploma go to college and secure a career.

I need a laptop or iPad to take advantage of the online GED.com practice testing to take the test for my equivalency diploma and use the several websites provided to apply for employment.

Meeting this need will help me because it would make me eligible for employment which demands a High school diploma or GED is required. Meeting this need would also prove to my children that it is never to late to get a education which will also make them proud of me.

If her need can be reached, I have no doubt that she will succeed in her reaching her goals.
