I started the myPLACE program, now I know how important having computer skills are. I am now able to do an online reading and writing course. Now that I have some computer skills, I want to know more – to improve my typing speed and learn all the functions of the keys. The skills I’m acquiring in this class will be of great value to me in the future. My thirst for knowledge is so great now, and I think that is a wonderful thing!
