: my graduation gift: (life as an upper class citizen) Graduation is a very big deal for everyone studying in high school. This is something all students wait for so they can finally go to university. When I was near to graduating on june-2018, my parents who were extremely proud of me even reaching to that stage asked me what I wanted for my graduation present. After telling them what I wanted they said they would think about it and as the time went by along with other things I did not remember or care about that anymore. But as soon as my graduation ceremony was finished, my dad took me and 3 of my best friends, Zain, Jara and Ava to his car and gave us the keys to his getaway house on the islands of Greece. That was just the beginning as I also got my very own apartment in central London as a graduation gift, in the following few days My friends and I packed and headed of to Greece and Ibiza in style as my parents gave us their jet for the vacation. As we arrived in Athens we visited the beautiful sights in and around the capital city of Greece and it was marvelous and the history behind everything was just so fascinating to me. But then it was time to go to my dad’s getaway house which was in Anafi. to get there we had to fly to Santorini from where we had to take a ferry to Anafi and once we arrived there we were stunned to see that places this beautiful even exist in real life. It was like one of those small and quiet islands away from all the tourism and the people on that island were shocked to see foreigners as they rarely get any tourists there. During our stay in Anafi we visited possibly the best beaches any of us had ever been to and had some of the best food we could ever eat. After sunset the area didn’t seem like a ghost town and had some life in it with some of the most beautiful beach clubs I had ever been to.

After staying for a week on the island we practically knew everyone there and the lessons we learned in that week will stay with us until we die. It was fascinating to see how most of the locals did not own phones or any kind of fancy technology and most of the island only had dial-up Wi-Fi and even with the lack of all of those modern day necessities they seemed to be doing just fine. Leaving Anafi was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do. But the memories we made there stay with us forever. We then flew to Ibiza where we somehow managed to meet some of the best Dj’s like Steve Aoki and Major Lazer at our hotel. The full week at Ibiza was just full of life with staying out and partying until 6am and then repeating the same the next day. In all of this partying we were out with different people every night at different clubs or different festivals and learning about the cultures and lifestyle of the people there was wildly intriguing. After 7 days of no sleep and destroyed livers and

    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.
