“I couldn’t believe it. Out of nowhere, someone cared enough to send me exactly what I needed for school.”
My name is Jamar and I am a freshman at John Jay College. One day, I hope to become a criminal psychologist or a district attorney.
When my friends would get mail and packages from home, I always felt a little sad because I knew nothing was ever going to come for me. Boy was I ever surprised to receive the Back-to-School Package from New Yorkers For Children. From that point on, I knew that I was not alone. Knowing that someone cares about me really gives me the strength to do my best in school.
Before I got my laptop it was very difficult to do my school work. The lines for the public computers were always so long and the time limit was too short for me to do a good job. I spent many long nights waiting for my turn which definitely was a physical and emotional strain.
This laptop is the greatest gift I have ever received. Now I can focus on my school work and get my homework done more efficiently. Your support means a great deal to me and has changed my life in so many ways. I will not let you down.
