Mariah from Brooklyn, New York

I'm a single mom working hard to apply for college. A laptop will help me get there.

It's very hard to be successful in school without a computer. With a laptop, I can pursue a career in education and support my son.


I am a hardworking single mother with lots of goals and ambitions. I currently am in the process of applying for college. It is important for me to have my son see me working and in school to set a good example for him.

My goals are to get my four year degree, work, and save up to move into my own house. I want to start putting down a foundation for a better life for my son.

I need a laptop so that I can apply for college and use for my college courses. It is really hard to be successful in school without a computer. This need is really important, as I need a computer in order to type papers, study, etc.

Meeting this need will help me because having a college degree will help me pursue my career in the Department of Education. With a college degree, I will have more opportunities for employment and to achieve my dreams.

It would mean the world to hear to receive her degree in education, as she would like to work for the Department of Education. Having a laptop is essential in order to be fully prepared for school. It would mean the world to Mariah to have this need fulfilled.
