I had fractured my growth plate, torn multiple ligaments and overstretched my Achilles. So I was going to need to be put in a cast for the next two months at the least. This was definitely the end of my season, but it was the beginning of a whole new opportunity. The first month that I was healing my ankle, I didn't exercise much and continued to eat junk food.

    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.
