people during different situations. My goal of working in a hospital gives me many challenges in speaking with patients on a day-to-day basis. The words that are spoken by a doctor or by me can be either the best or worst news the patient can hear, and how those words are said and expressed are very important. I want to challenge myself to be able to relate to those patients and have a personal connection through my actions and expressions. I also want to learn more about communicating with children. Wanting to work in a children’s hospital will challenge me to have to learn the successful ways to speak to a child. Through babysitting the same children for the past three years, I have learned the easier ways to get through to them, but I would like to learn different ways that do not require treats and rewards. It is so easy to give in to the sweet innocent faces of a three year old, but I would like to be able to learn the better ways to communicate to them in order for them to obey. I have always been interested in the way that one person can take what someone says and completely misunderstand them. It is so intriguing how words can be twisted in a way that they can may a person look bad or also make them look good. In the media it is very easy to twist words that politicians and celebrities have said.

    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.
