Tales from the Coffeeshop: Leah on Internet access in Seattle

I am a student at Seattle Central Community College, and working my way toward a masters in teaching. My enrollement, class registration, applications for graduate programs, financial aid and classwork. I need reliable internet access. I feel very lucky to have internet access at home. Without this, I'm not sure I would have been able to juggle work, school, and applications. Having access at home meant I could register for classes after work hours, take an online class and research graduate programs into the wee hours of the night.

I even applied for unemployment benefits online when I lost my job! had I not had this kind of access, I cerntainly would have been at a serious disadvantage financially and academically. Everyone deserves this kind of access!
