To be honest, I consider myself to be a very fortunate individual. All of my immediate family is still alive, and we have all managed to stay healthy and blessed our entire lives.

    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.
