Asian Parents Expectations VS Reality ♥ My Story ♥ Wengie #changedestiny

Lets get this to 5,000 thumbs up!!! Every Asian parents have grand plans for their kids! Mainly to get good grades in school, avoid dating and do your homework every night! My story is a little bit different, I chose a career path that isn’t conventional and I hope my story inspires you to follow your own dreams no matter what your parents expect of you or what they say about your report card!

SK-II believes a woman’s destiny isn’t locked in her DNA and set at birth – it’s something she creates for herself. Whether she’s breaking stereotypes or setting new standards, the SK-II woman knows what she wants and goes for it, even if it means changing her destiny. #changedestiny

    It was very brave to follow you dreams even if it was not what your family wished for you, especially with parents who have such high expectations! I am lucky enough to have a family that is open enough to let me do what I want 🙂 (They can't complain because I like studying anyway… :p)
    Anyway, your story is inspiring! Keep going and follow your dreams !

    Love from France! x

    After watching this, I did remember myself failing in my grades because I'm not as naturally smart as the other asians and my siblings so my parents would totally freak out. I was more on the creative side so I was never into all this medical jobs. But I did choose business as my career path and omg it's hard too. Compare to other asians, I'm more into art, fashion, and beauty than having the brains and being rich. Great story Wengie ^__^

    I can relate to this topic and you Wengie, in so many ways! I didn't end up going to Uni or college for what my parents wanted; but I ditched the whole continuing education all together; I moved out at 18, right after graduating high school, and moved a couple hours away from home with my then boyfriend (which parents did not care for). Didn't do anything really for the next 2 years, and here I am back in school completing the final year of my Bachelor's degree for science in IT. My parents wanted so many other things for me; but it's only a few years ago that they realized that I was more than their child, but an individual that had to grow and walk their own path. <3 Loved this video and thanks so much for sharing your experiences.
