I open the door and look at the tired woman that stands in front of me, of Hispanic heritage I gather; a dabble of lipstick to brighten her aging and fatigued face. I'm sure she has seen better days than this and I assumed her shoes need replacing for they were worn and might fail her soon. She is probably thinking that she’s being failed by the current immigration policy that now wreaks havoc in her daily life, wondering if she will still have a job at the end of the day. I politely tell her, "We don't need any services for the room today but thank you for asking Ana", as her name tag is displayed in bold.

    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.
