Right now, we are all sitting in a classroom in a city which was once nicknamed "The Murder  Capital of the United States ". A nickname that, although embarrassing to its residents, is incredibly  true. Some may not believe or have any direct attachments to a nick name like this, but I do. October 5th 2009 was a terrible day for my family, and continues to haunt us each and every year.  This date commemorates the death of my Uncle, Sam Shaba. My Uncle Sam was one of the most  interesting people you could imagine. He built his businesses, video stores, from the ground up. He was  so determined to give his family a wonderful life that he dedicated the majority of his short life to his work.  He always hoped for his family to live the American dream and wanted to provide his wife and three  daughters with everything they could ever need or want. By working so hard and never giving up he was  able to do just that. By the time he was 40 years old he was a multi-millionaire. He had achieved  everything he had always wanted. Although, the old saying "money cannot buy happiness" played  perfectly into my Uncle Sam’s life when his wife filed for divorce. This took a major toll on his life, but he  always looked to God in times like that when he was lost. He became a deacon in his church and was a

    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.
