In order to live in a world that manipulates your every move you must become immune to it. Learning about Yeonmi’s story made me realized that I am not alone in this world. In 2007, I did too escaped from a communist country. Just like Yeonmi I had to conquer numerous obstacles to achieve happiness. Unlike her, I was not sold in the black market or sexually assaulted. Surviving in a foreign country and having to learn a new language was not an easy task. Reading about her trying to learn Chinese and going to school in South Korea made me remember my past. On September 25, 2007, my mother decided that it was time to go in search of our freedom. We flew to Costa Rica in hope of a better future and with hope that someday we could reunite with our loved ones. From that weeklong stay in Costa Rica to the false bottom compartment of an 18-wheeler, we fought our way to The United States of America.

    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.
