Amanda from Chicago, IL

I'm one class away from starting a new career. Just need to cover the costs.

Meeting this need will help me provide more opportunities for my family by becoming a licensed real estate broker.


I am a full-time mom who’s looking to significantly gain independence and fully provide for my family of two. In 2010 I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Merchandise marketing the arts. Since then I have been on a mission of discovery to find a career and my true passion in life.

My goal is to go to real estate school and become a real estate broker. I am excited about what’s to come, for my life and I am greatly appreciative to the help of others who have and may help me along my journey.

I need to pay for 75-hour broker pre-license topics course, the state licensing exam and a 30- hour post training course.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to provide more opportunities for my family and further my career development by becoming a real estate broker. I am a strong believer of myself and I am extremely hopeful in my search of establishing abundant living for my family and securing the quality of my future. Yet, I am open to gaining more skills that can assist in my development and professional growth. Beginning in 2018 I plan to enroll in Real Estate school to become a licensed broker in Illinois.

I have known Karimah through the social service center case management program and drop-in services for over a year. Karimah is very professional and always makes it to her appointments ready to work on her goals. I believe this assistance will help Karimah take a big step in advancing her career and self.
