Episode #58: Your Dream Is Not Your Parents’ Dream

Are you wondering what should fuel you in this college admissions journey? Should you aim to please your parents above all else? In this episode of Demystifying College Admissions, I’m going to share my honest thoughts about how much your parents’ should influence your passions and goals.

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • The relationship between students and parents in this college admissions journey
  • What should be the primary reason for wanting to attend a certain university
  • How mindset regarding your passions will follow you beyond college admissions
  • What kind of students have a higher chance of getting accepted into their dream school

NOTABLE QUOTES:

Growing up in America, as an immigrant, I always felt like I had to make my parents’ sacrifices worth it.
It should come from your passion!
If you don’t feel fulfilled, happy, and passionate inside, then no external validation or accomplishments will ever make you happy.
If you do not take any action, then you will never ever know what is within you.
Your self-exploration needs to start early so that you can make adjustments.
