Loryn Dion Oct. 5, 2010 SOC 320 Journal #4 – page 193(DD) In your opinion, has gender, race/ethnicity, or class had the most impact on your work aspirations and experiences? Ask the same question to people from different racial/ethnic and class groups. Also ask a member of the opposite sex. Are their responses similar to yours? Do any patterns begin to emerge in the responses you receive? I think for me, both class and gender played huge roles in the job aspirations I’ve had. First, when I was younger, I wanted to be a veterinarian and, like I said in my last journal entry, my parents really pushed me towards it. Neither of my parents went to college or tried hard for the jobs or money they wanted. I grew up being lower middle class and never having much money. We always struggled a lot and my parents would always talk about how much easier things would be if they had continued with school. So from a young age, I knew I wanted to go to college and get a well paying job so that I wouldn’t have to struggle as much as my parents did. So therefore, I’d definitely say that class played a huge part

    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.
