Favorite Class or Professor and Why

My favorite class is Organic 351. I would always underestimate myself because I heard it was a hard class. I used my own study strategies and was able to get an A. This taught me the lesson to always believe in yourself and ignore what others say, it's all about the time and effort you put in.
