accessories, pampered pets with their equally pampered owners. I was a young, I was jealous,I was a wanting child. I wanted what they all had, and I wanted the looks and confidence that those who wore those overpriced, simplistic, materialist apparel gained.

Giving lies to my employers as I explained the money made would be beneficial to my college savings. When actually, all I wanted money for was to upgrade my lacking wardrobe.

    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.
