Hi I'm reaching out to everyone out there to help me raise fund to get me a laptop that I would use and help me improve my work, and this will also be used during the times when I will be getting back to college to finish my degree.
I'm am a college undergraduate with a course of Computer Science. Last 2009 I have to stop going to college as I could not get any more funds to support my college. I'm just 2 semester away from getting a bachelors degree before I stop.
I went to find and do different kinds of work from selling home made meat food products to flipping burgers in a school cafeteria. After some years I was finally able to get my very first computer (laptop) a Thinkpad X230. I was able to acquire it through a local online classified site. It was the first owners company issued laptop but she was given an new one and that is why she sold the older laptop. You can see the picture of my current laptop on the gallery above.
Imagine that going to college and taking a computer programming course without any laptop or computer at home. By the way I was raised from a poor family. My parents move it to the city to get jobs and was born and raise on there. I have interest in computers since during my high-school it was a trend.
I have been using the laptop to help me improving my coding and helping me learn more and execute what I have learned so far in my college days. With the use of the laptop I was able to take on coding jobs. Later on I was able to move to website development and it is the most easiest jobs that a under graduate like me can take.
Recently I have not getting much jobs since most of the jobs requires a full stack web developer one that can also handle graphic designing. I have been trying to practice my designing skills but with my current laptop It cannot handle the resource hungry software for graphically designing.
I wanted to ask for your help in funding me to get a much better laptop, that can have a much powerful processor higher ram and has a much better gpu like amd. With this I can practice my designing skills, land more web development jobs as I can also do designing aside from coding with the use of a new laptop. I can also increase my profit and help me save for my college education. I am really planning to get it finished with. I can also use the laptop for possible college projects.
With the fund I'm raising depending on how much I can get, I can but a brand new, not second hand used, laptop to replace my outdated old laptop. And if ever there are still some money left I can use it to but needed graphics software or put it on savings for college.
Why do I need to get funded? First I don't earn much. I have to lower my prices for me to land or to get the job. On what I earn every month, I get to pay monthly bills like rent, electricity, water, and internet bills. The remainder will be for food and transport, budgeting it to get by till the following month. With this funding I can get a better tool for my work, I can land high paying jobs because I can do more things with it. High paying job is equal to a high savings every month. If I got enough savings I can cut my hours of work and can dedicate that time to my college education. I am planning on going back to college on June 2017 if I can save up the right amount.
