London at South End Technology Center at Tent City

“As a young man growing up on the streets of Boston, I had few dreams and little interest in looking beyond how I would survive the day.

After a particularly difficult period in my life, I finally landed a job at a printing company, but my roadblocks and frustrations were almost too much to bear. For instance, when Photoshop software was introduced there, I was denied the opportunity to learn it. Then a friend told me about the Timothy Smith Computer Center at the South End Technology Center at Tent City. The technology instructor agreed to train me and in return, I promised to teach others what I learned.

I continued to work at the print shop during the day and took classes, and as promised, gave classes in the evenings. Eventually I left the print shop and earned an Associate degree from Gibbs College in Boston. Today, I work at Boston Neighborhood Network as a technology instructor. However, I’m still taking classes and “giving back” at South End Technology Center. Technology changed the course of my life and helped me to realize my dreams for a productive and rewarding life.”
