Good day. I am Noluthando Makhanya a 27 year old Chemical Engineering graduate. I have been job hunting since the beginning of the pandemic with no luck at finding a job. I recently had to part ways with my 9 year old laptop that I have been using since matric. It was more of a desktop than a laptop because it only worked when it was plugged into electricity, but it really made my life a bit easier than what I’m facing now. I am currently on a transition period from Engineering to Tech and I wanted to do online courses on Data Analysis while applying for Tech apprenticeships so that I gain the necessary skills to get into Tech/ IT. It has been such a difficult period for me since most of the things I have to do in a desktop/ laptop and I only have my phone. Sometimes even editing CVs on my phone is hard. I am in need of a new laptop and would be so happy if I were chosen to receive one. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share my story. I hope to hear from you soon.
