upon by R. Anaya (Anaya 1996:51). But meaning handling your business, protecting what is yours, and taking no mess from others. So growing up I had to be “Macho” and strong. Another one of the readings I can relate to is T. Avicoli work not because I identify with being a homosexual male but because growing up I had skin disorder called psoriasis that I was picked at about. I can empathies with Tommi about how he felt. And like Tommi I didn’t run home and tell my parents I just kept it all inside. I was called reptile boy and people often looked at me with fear not because they felt I was weird but because they were ignorant to my situation. I would often wear closed that covered my skin so people would interact with me and I could feel like I was a part of them. I feel that this has shaped me into being a little reticent to the groups I associated with or who I open up to. So like Tommi school was a little painful for me growing up (Avicoli 1995:69). When my skin got better I began to break out my shell and became more outgoing and involved in the things I did and the people I hung out with. I began to become talkative and felt more alive and that I had a purpose.

    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.
