following what his grandmother told him, however, he took off his jacket showing that he was a Jew so in some ways renouncing his religion. "Listening to my breath reminded me that I was still alive and needed to do whatever it took to remain so" (pg 37). I, of course, cannot relate to this on level of survival but I can relate to my experience with dance and everything that I've had to endure. Of course, I had no life or death situation but dance was one thing that I took very seriously in high school. I and my coach didn't always get along the best since we both had a dominant personality. It caused very unnecessary high-stress and sour times. During my freshman year, I kind of bummed out with dance and didn't always put it first it caused my second year to be even more difficult because I had to prove myself. I had to put in a lot more time and effort to show that this is where I wanted to be. I was determined to show my coach how good of a dancer I was and was willing to work as hard as I needed to prove to her I wasn't that same person. Another time we see Martin determined to survive is on page 62 when he's being

    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.
