Help Dove Fly: Support a Survivor Through a Life-Changing Tech Program!

Hello! And thanks for coming to my gift site <3. With your support, I will be able to complete a full time, accelerated IT program and launch my career in tech!

All of your loving gifts will go towards:

-Securing reliable transportation: I lost my car in an accident last fall and need to be able to commute to a MARTA-accessible area to attend class

-Housing: Currently I have the most housing security in a rural part of town. With your help, I may be able to temporarily relocate to an area that provides MARTA access

-Living Expenses: Because the program is during full-time work hours, I will have to step away from full time positions for the moment. Anything that can assist with daily expenses and bills would help tremendously!

-Study Materials: Any extra textbooks, learning websites, or hardware I may need in class and beyond!

I hope to use this opportunity to launch my career in tech and find ways that technology can further harmony between our communities and the environment. The more I am provided for, the more I will be able to give. Thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting me and my career dreams!

A bit of backstory:

As many of you may already know, I have always had an interest in technology. Even as young as a preteen, I was trying to figure out how computers work and what's going on inside. I was my family's go -to for tech support for everything from setting up DSL connections (remember those?!) to sending an email. Tech holds an undeniable magic to me and I always want to know more about it and pass on my knowledge.

I attended McKinley Tech HS in DC in 2005. Here, I was immersed in to the IT field and learned some basics in Graphic Design, Game Design, and IT fundamentals that set the foundation for my skills today. I had access to programs like Adobe Illustrator which were new to non-professionals and students like myself, which are now industry standard. I may have been able to find out how far I could go with this path, but life had a different path in store for me. In 2007, my family packed up our capital city ways and moved to a surburban/rural town about 35 minutes south of Atlanta.

It's been 12 years since then, and what an adventure! I attended college for a couple of years, but had to withdraw because of financial hardship. I gathered life experience in many non-tech jobs. The paths of my life and the tech-industry seemed to twist and turn. Sometimes they seemed to be one, and other times, they couldn't be farther apart! Despite these challenges, I still carried my love for tech in heart. I have a small but growing graphic design portfolio, and a recent development that may literally change my life!

I've been studying at home for my CompTIA A+ and Net+ certifications, two types of "certs" that open the door to a tech career. Then my friend referred a program that offers just that (as well as a web development/coding track!!!) with a full scholarship! Admission is competitive: They want to be sure that students can complete the program in full, pass the exams, and launch their careers.

Completion is a major factor because the program is an accelerated, bootcamp type of experience. It's full-time school, Monday through Friday, from 9am to 5pm, for 15 weeks. A big part of the admissions process is ensuring the school that I will simply be able to make it to class everyday. With your help, I will be able to do that, and much more!

All of your loving gifts will go towards:

-Securing reliable transportation: I lost my car in an accident last fall and need to be able to commute to a MARTA-accessible area to attend class

-Housing: Currently I have the most housing security in a rural part of town. With your help, I may be able to temporarily relocate to an area that provides MARTA access

-Living Expenses: Because the program is during full-time work hours, I will have to step away from full time positions for the moment. Anything that can assist with daily expenses and bills would help tremendously!

-Study Materials: Any extra textbooks, learning websites, or hardware I may need in class and beyond!

Once more, thank you so much for all of your support! Please share my campaign and tell your friends how I'm diversifying an industry!
