Going into my senior year of High School, I'd used the library and other peoples computers for my research, typing, among other projects that required computer usage. This was getting to be more of a hassle for me and the people who I would ask to use their computer because it took away from their time from their schedule to get me and let me use their computer. When I got to Northern High School in Durham NC, a teacher mentioned Kramden Institute and said that I could get a computer of my own, the only requirements were not to have one. I'd never owned one nor had my family for several years. That October morning when I received my computer, immediately, I found where I was benefiting from it. No more hassles to getting my work done, no more begging people to use their stuff and on top of all that, my sisters are benefiting from it as well. They use it frequently for their school work. Kramden has been so much of a blessing to me personally, and now, from time to time, I go there and volunteer some time to help other underprivileged students get a computer because I've been where they are. Thank you Kramden.
