Laptop for Gerardo who is studying hard so he can attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill!

Posted Oct 19, 2017
Gerardo once mentioned to me that a compute would be a big help with his homework. Since then he’s been talking about writing music using software like DAWS. Several times he has mentioned that he is really good with technology. He is able to do well at the computers in school. Once, he said that he’d like to leverage his tech skills to write an app and that he had an idea for the app. I think that a laptop could actually be that little nudge to get him going on all these fronts.

Gerardo is 16 years old and lives in Charlotte, NC

I’ve known Gerardo for about a year now. He is a respectful and bright young individual. He has integrated well, and is a cherished member of the foster family. He has his heart set on going to UNC. He works hard. He is enrolled in after-school classes to further his SAT scores in English and Math. He likes sports, especially loves playing basketball and soccer. He reads business books. He would like to leverage his technology skills to make his mark in life; by writing an app, for instance.
