continued to play. I played with tears in my eyes because I never could play as well as the children I know, but I continued to practice. Now I really love my violin and I can not imagine myself without this instrument. I play in the orchestra, I go to contests, in which I compete against many other musicians. I do what I love. The violin makes me happy. But more pride and joy for myself comes only because I went through it without the help of talent. This makes my skill more meaningful. Talent is amazing. This is what helps to move on. But unfortunately, talent is not given to everyone, but everyone has the ability to practice. Many people overestimate talent, refusing to do what they want or does not want, because if you want to be successful in something, you wouldn’t care about talent, only moving forward. The fact that there is no talent in person does not mean that the practice is powerless. Talent is overrated, it always was, and always will be. But we could make changes starting from now.

    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.
