My mom went to the door due someone knocking and that day changed our lives forever. My mom called my dad and told him he had to leave our home and to never return.

    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.
