Driving lessons for Audrey who wants have her own transportation

Posted Nov 22, 2023
Audrey would like access to a driving school and get an instructor to help her study for the drivers written test and attend driving lessons. Audrey lives with her aunt (legal guardian) and her three younger siblings, where Audrey’s aunt is the only person in her household that owns a car and drives. Though Audrey lives 16 minutes away from school she needs to take the bus to school which normally takes about 40 minutes to an hour. However, Audrey’s aunt is planning to move farther away within the next year, and this will greatly increase the commute time from home to school. This will affect Audrey’s education because since she cannot drive, she will need to switch from in-person learning to remote learning, which is a problem because Audrey cannot comprehend and pay attention to class when online learning. Therefore, Audrey needs her driver's license. Audrey has been trying to study the driver's handbook to prepare for the written test, but she needs an instructor to help her study.

Audrey is 19 years old and lives in CA

Audrey is in her first year at Cal State Long Beach. She is pursuing a degree in Business Management. Her goal is to gain knowledge and experience on how to start and maintain a business. She plans to join internships within her business major to get more involved with her desired career and gain connections with her class. Audrey’s goal is to earn her bachelor's degree in business management in the next 4 years and become a licensed cosmetologist. Her dream is to become a hair technician with her own salon. Audrey would love to style hair and form connections with her clients. Her favorite part of styling hair was at the end, when she sees her sisters/cousin's run to the closest mirror and express a bundle of joy and excitement to their hairstyle. Audrey loved sending her cousins and sisters to school looking cute with their hairstyles. She loves to make people feel good about themselves and receive many compliments for her work. Audrey is a truly kind and sociable person.
