Dishchyan1 Lida Dishchyan Professor Ramirez English 98 5/18/2017 The Mistake that changed My Life There have been many challenges that I had to overcome throughout my life. One of the biggest ones was during my high school years when I was trying to fit in. I've had numerous amount of people offer me all sorts of things that I knew were bad for me. Most of the time, I would politely decline but I let my insecurities about fitting in get the best of me. For example, my mom would tell me to never curse because it was bad but because my friends did it I started doing it as well so they wouldn’t tease me about not cursing. My mom always had open views on life, however, there was nothing open when it came to drugs. She would tell me to stay away from people who did it or offered it; but of course I had my own thoughts about it. I let everyone else's opinion get in the way of what my mom said and it was all because I wanted to fit in.

    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.

    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.
