1. The first person I chose to interview is my mother. The reason I chose to interview my mother was because at this time of the murder she was in her early 20’s. She was new to American and she was trying to find her way in society. She escaped from Iran and was determined to find her way in society. 2. The second person I decided to interview was my father. My father was on the same boat as my mother. He came from Iran to the states looking for a better life. When he did come to the states activist movements and equality were huge in society.

    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.
