Tanji from Chicago, IL

Training to work in welding; I need car repairs so I can commute to my courses.

I'm working towards a solid career with this certification, but after a car accident I have no way to get to classes (or to jobs after I'm certified).


I am 21 years old. I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago with my mother and 4 siblings. I grew up poor and we struggled a lot.

My goals are to get the knowledge and financial support to better my life. I am working towards a welding certification, which will hopefully lead to a successful career.

I need $700 to fix the damage to my car. I had a car accident so I need help with my car repair cost. I need my vehicle to get me back and forth to school and soon to work.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to go to school to finish my welding certification. Then I will have a vehicle when I get a job.

Tanji is a burst of positive energy. She is working to get her Welding certification in our program. Tanji is not one to ask for help because she is humble. Helping her get her car repairs will not only allow her to complete training, but it will also allow her to get back and forth to work when we find her career.
