Sylwester Czado 10-22-07 KIN 278, Journal Question #1 I identify my socioeconomic class as lower-middle class. I work part-time at CVS while trying to get an education. I live in an urban neighborhood that consists mostly of whites who have a similar class backgrounds as I do. Specifically, I live in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. For most of my life, my family lived in an apartment. We bought a house prior to me beginning 8 th grade in middle school. My household consists of my parents, a younger sister (17-years-old to be exact), and myself. All four of us have our own cars now that my sister got a driver’s license. However, they are all used cars. The general price of a home in my neighborhood is around $250,000. The household income of my parents generally fits the lower-middle class characteristic. My family likes to go on vacations a good amount because we have family in Europe, mainly Poland. My parents were born in Poland, but I was not. We try to go visit every 2-3 years while one of my parents stays in America to watch the house and work. I have been to many places in Europe including: Italy, Poland, France, and Austria, just to name a few. I say that I come from a lower-middle class because my parents came from Europe as refugees.

    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.
