Do you think parents should try to influence their children's career choiced? Why or why not?
Do you think parents should support their children's career choices both emotionally and financially? Why or why not?
I’ve always been a go-getter and established from a young age that I fight for what I want.
When I was in high school, my parents wanted me to take a science/engineering path, but I wanted to get into the arts and humanities, and my career counsellor at school didn’t let me change my path unless my parents approved. I ultimately got them to give me a chance to prove myself and haven’t looked back since.
The ironic thing is that my parents are proud that I fought for what I wanted, because it allowed me to pursue something I’m passionate about, and ultimately my parents love me and want me to be happy, even if my happiness doesn’t come from what they wanted for me.
