Paul Lopez Political Science 041-03/04 Monday, September 10, 2007 Assignment: Political Autobiography My name is Paul, and I have a problem. For as long as I can remember, I have yearned for a long and meaningful career in the morally ambiguous field of politics. When my fellow schoolmates shuffled their dreams between being a police officer and a firefighter, I wanted to be President of the United States. Granted, I do now realize the unlikelihood of that dream coming true, but it is still something that greatly interests me. And after all, parents always tell their children to dream big. My fascination with political life most likely stems from my severe inability to submit to the will of authority figures. All my life I have been an independent soul truly ecstatic about fighting injustice no matter what the potential risk to my own reputation. When school systems in the area would go against their own handbook rules, I would confront the administration. When prominent athletes in the area were given preferential treatment by local law enforcement, I would do just the same. I guess one could say that I have the personality necessary to take the plunge into the world of dirty politics. My interest in the political science major was truly solidified by an experience I had in the summer preceding my senior year of high school. I was lucky enough to participate in a month long intensive internship for the Office of Senator John F. Kerry.

    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.
