Fifield 1 Jennifer Fifield Professor Sarah Cohen English 131 10 December 2007 Lending a Loving Hand Shorter Paper 1.1 -- Personal Narrative I walked into the apartment for the first time, greeted by a loud combination of cries and voices in Chinese. The senior caretaker told me to xi shou , or to wash my hands. I counted ten babies in the living room, all less than six months old. Most were awake, but several were asleep on beds or in swinging chairs. As I walked from the entry to the living room, I noted how this orphanage was not what I expected. It was a three-room apartment with modern kitchen, large living room, and bedroom: it was immaculate, bright, and well furnished, especially for a Chinese apartment. And there were several adult women, each tending two babies. They told me this orphanage was for seriously sick children and babies. Each child I played with during that seven-hour shift needed life-changing medical attention, something as minor as a cleft palette to something as major as permanent hydrocephalus and paralysis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
