"Crossing a the divide on your own is hard if you see nothing to cross to. Yet, if I meet you half way, you'll know that hope lies on the otherside" - Dean Hendricks


  • My daily routine has changed dramatically ever since I’ve gotten my computer, I no longer have to wake up 1 hour earlier than usual to turn on my old family computer in order for it to start on time. I can now turn on my own computer with a simple click of a button.

  • I go to school in person most of the time, but when someone who I was around has covid I have to stay home. The school would give me a Chromebook that I could use, but it was slow and would often freeze on me. I sometimes would fall behind in my classwork, but now there is nothing holding me back
