In the year, 1845 the Great Potato Famine began in my home country of Ireland (Killen, 1995). It was one of the most awful and dreadful things I have ever witnessed. Hundreds of thousands of people were dying, many of which I knew very well. I was a 17-year old girl at the time, pregnant, and newly married. My husband I knew that the only way we would live and be able to raise our baby would be to leave the country we loved so much – to leave the people we knew and the homes we lived in. My husband and I boarded a ship that was heading to Boston. They told us that we were going to the land of opportunity, and I have to admit, we were actually anxious to witness this new destination. We were lucky and made it over before the cost of tickets went up. I wasn’t sure exactly where it was, but I knew it was supposed to be huge. As soon as we arrived, my husband and I started looking for jobs.

What students are saying

    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.
