Who is the speaker of the poem? It is not the author necessarily. What can you tell about the speaker from the poem?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
