Born to a Coal Minor on August 21, 1830 in Belfast, my family and I suffered many set backs and tribulations. In 1841, my father came home from working in the Coal Mines to tell my mother we were moving to America. We had no choice, the company that owned the Coal Mine was letting everyone go. My two brothers and I were to stay with our aunt and uncle until the day Father could send for us. My mother and he were to sail out the next week for America. Three weeks later my brothers and I received word from our parents, we were to board the ship the in three weeks to meet our parents in America. As the weeks went by, more and more families lost their homes and life styles as Coal Mine companies laid off more and more workers. Finally the day came when my two brothers and I boarded the ship setting sail to America. We went to the port to find the ticket man, he was the one who was supposed to have our boarding passes, and he went off to purchase our tickets, so we could be on our way. The seas where rough, and the ship rocked steadily with every wave. My fearful brothers huddled closely together next to me in the belly of the mammoth ship with the sounds of the mighty steam engine moving us along. The journey seemed to last forever as we were told by the ticket man that we were not to leave the area. It almost seemed as if we were being smuggled into the country where we would be free. Sailing with us was an elderly woman.

    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.
