Xiong 1 Nhia Xiong Professor English 101 October 3, 2016 On August 21 st I arrived here at Stout, I came here early because I joined a program called Stoutward Bound. Within that program I met people who I could relate to, since they were all minorities. I met people of the same culture and of many different cultures. These people were strangers to me at first and could still be if I never attended the Stoutward Bound program. The program taught me that everyone has their own story and that they too, have great dreams. When we first met everyone was quiet and didn’t talk much around each other, until the first weekend where our whole Stoutward Bound program was split up into two groups. One group went to a leadership course that lasted two days, while the other stayed back with free time and would attend the course the following weekend. My group was the one that went to the course first. The teacher of the course was the owner of Famous Dave’s son. His name was James Anderson, James taught us many important things about being a leader and how to succeed in life. James first told us that “Energy is Everything”, and that when we speak we should have enthusiasm in our voice as we project it. So as we went farther into the two-day course, in the group I was put into I grew to think of them as family and the same they thought of me. I knew that I could count on them.

    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.
