Student Gilbert Dale In Need of New Computer

My name is Gilbert Dale, I live in Los Angeles, CA and I’m self-supporting art student working my way through college. Unfortunately, I had my computer shattered when handled by the airlines upon returning home from visiting a friend. The airline claimed they’re not responsible and due to the situation, it may prevent me from completing my last semester of college.

I’ve been an aspiring Illustrator for the past 9 years and it’s my dream to work for a studio in California as I continue to build my portfolio. As submissions in the field and school are done digitally, without access to a computer and the current pandemic keeping me home, this makes it difficult to move ahead in finishing my degree.

I just recently started working part-time making $10 an hour, but with the cost of renting a room and living expenses, I’m unable to afford a new computer at this time and desperately need to complete my degree this fall. I’ve always believed in community and going out of my way to help others in need. Now, I am asking for support as I am struggling to finish my education.
