Week 4 - Discussion 2: Personal Cultural Beliefs I was raised from the southern culture which I think also affects my personal, cultural beliefs. My parents had a Plantation that was the primary source of income to the family. Different crops were grown in the plantation mostly being corn and apples (Virginia ? History and Culture, n.d.). We also kept a good number of poultry. My mother ensured that before taking any meal, each one of us in the family took a fruit commonly apples. The most common foods that we took in the family included sweet tea, beans, meat among others. However, we used to go out as a family every weekend and moistly loved taking biscuits and sausage gravy. However, our southern diet was blamed for the several health complications that most of the residents had. Smoking was a significant problem which I tend to believe was because of the large tobacco plantations in the area (West Virginia, n.d.). However, there were traditional herbs that people used to take while suffering from “minor” illness.

    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.
