Focusing on writing: The Birks purpose of this essay is to show how important language is. He also shows how different each person sees and interprets the world.

    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.
