Shaquille from Manhattan, New York

Ready to start work as a train operator. Fees for my exam will help me land a job!

I need application money to apply for the MTA exam to get a job as a subway train operator, so that I can support my daughter.


I am a 21-year-old father who is interested in becoming a train conductor. This has been a goal of mine since I was little. At present I would like to apply for a position with MTA as a train conductor.

My goals are to obtain a career with the MTA system as a conductor. My plans are to secure employment and save enough money to by a home for me and my family. My ambition is to retire from the MTA system at a early age and begin working with youth in my community.

I need the application money to apply for the MTA exam.

Meeting this need will help me because I would be able to take the exam that would lead me towards a stable career so that I can be financially independent and take care of my family.

I have known Shaquille for a period of six months. He is a dedicated father to his daughter and does try to keep his relationship with her positive. He has proven that above all else she is his motivating factor. Shaquille will do well given the assist he needs to become a train conductor. He is currently out of work due to the closure of his place of employment. Due to his past work history I feel that he will find a job soon. However he is seeking a meaningful career.
