My father(who is American) is a lawyer who works for a big firm in NYC. My mother(originally from Korea) is a Korean-English real estate agent.

Do you like your parent's occupation?
I don't mind their occupations at all. I am proud of what they've accomplished and they have given me a good life.

Would you follow their path?
Actually I have thought about kind of following in my dad's footsteps as being a lawyer. I have a passion for justice and law, and I really have a drive for helping others. I want to change the world, even just a little bit.

My dad works an office job for a community college and my mom works as a dental hygentist.

Do you like your parent's occupation?

I wouldn't say that I like their occupation, but I wouldn't say that I dislike it either. Its not like its a dead end job like if they were some sort of waitress or something. But its not something that catches my eye.

Would you follow their path?

No I wouldn't really. Besides I don't even really like dental hygiene.. o_o

But I might work for a work study at the community college as my dad does if I need a job...

It brings the money in, doesn't it?

Like every other Asian kid, my dream occupation is to be a teacher / doctor / lawyer. I haven't decided yet. I still have...about four more years.

My dad owns 2 construction companies while my Mom's a homemaker.

I don't think I could follow my dad's footsteps since it's construction and I'm not really good with that. Maybe a desk job will work for me...

As for my mom, why not? I could do it!

But I'd prefer to go my own way... I want to be able to make it big on my own...

My dad's a medical technology development engineer. He's a manager right now I think, and soon will be taking a job in the marketing branch so he gets the experience to be a manager of his own branch of the company.

My mom is a paper doll artist and owns an ebay store.

I'd like to get into the medical field, although it doesn't have to be what my dad does.

Every other Asian kid? Isn't that a little bit overreacting? I mean .. my friend Aya has parents who really want her to become a Lawyer/Doctor but she want's to work in the Entertainment Industry. And I have lots of others friend who really don't want them to become what there parents want them to be.

Anyhow... Dad : Computer Technician (It,s more then that I just forgot how to say it in English )

Mom: Company Manager, she stopped when she got her first kid because she wanted to give us a good education.

That's when my parents moved to Canada because they wanted us to get a better education. Like most Arab parents (The north African ones) They want us to be a lawyer/Doctor/Mathematician..and so on. They want us to achieve something that they couldn't achieve.

Do you like your parents occupation? : No.

Would you follow their path? : No. And for Heavens and Earth they would never want that to happen o_O. I want to become A neurologist,surgeon or Emergency doctor (Which usually combines both) I've had that dream since I was 3 and I won't give it up. I do some volunteering at hospitals and at lunch I go to the hospitals cafeteria and always end up sitting at the same table as doctors. I love there job, they are the most respected people on earth and they save lives!!!

My aunt (Super ass rich women) Said if I become a doctor she swears that she'll open for me a clinic. ^^ Hopefully I'll become one.

That reminds me of something... My dad's friend is a well known Physician back home and a Med school teacher...he would always come to Canada for meetings and conferences...Once he decided to move Here with his family --- he became a ----



It,s a reality. And Canada is in a real need of doctors

I dont think I would follow my parents' paths, I mean, I cant see myself doing the stuff my dad does O_o...as for nursing, Im not too sure. Im actually considering it but i think my hearts leaning more to the teaching field
