I had been married and in an abusive relationship for 13 ½ years. My children were 11 and 12. My husband was in the Army and we were stationed in Germany at the time. My mom and dad were 76 yrs old during this time and had been married for over 50 years. They are very traditional and in being such, raised me with the same values.

    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.
