A new Laptop for Alexis who is job searching

Posted Nov 2, 2017
Alexis is asking for a laptop to help her in her search for a job as well as support her homework and study skills. Alexis currently is doing her papers, job searching and resume building all on her phone which is a big obstacle. She also has little experience using computers and would like to increase her knowledge in the basics including Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Google Apps. She thanks you for this possible holiday gift!

Alexis is 23 years old and lives in OR

Alexis is a strong young woman who is working hard to fill the gaps in her education and move towards graduating. She passed all her classes last semester and is on track to pass all her classes this semester. Alexis has been in and out of care throughout her childhood but her current foster home has been a really positive experience and she has been able to develop her social skills as well as work through her social anxiety. With her foster sisters she has created relationships that are more than surface level. She also has built a strong trusting relationship with her foster parent which has really helped her confidence and lessened her anxiety.
