Do you like your parent's occupation?
It's an ok job. My mom is a nurse.

Would you follow their path?
I'm a student nurse at the moment so I guess my answer is yes.

My mother is a sort of social worker, who works with young people who've been to jail to get their life on track, and my dad is vice-president of a web design company, and he used to be an accountant. I don't mind either of their jobs, but I wouldn't like to do either, I'd like to be a psychiatrist.

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.


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.


^ Oh wow someone has drive good for you

My mother is a nail technician. I would not follow her path and I think her job sucks. The people at her workplace treat her worse than her customer.

no i would not follow any of my family's occupations. although my mama has done really well for herself and made it to manager, none of my family has completed their high school education. i plan to go to university and take environmental sciences next year after working for the money.

Lol, I don't know if you can read or not, but I don't remember saying that I didn't appreciate her hard work. It's because that her job sucks that I know I owe her everything and that I don't want to follow her path and, instead, I rather choose another career path to take care of her.

Don't go off assuming jack, jack...

Urm ... my dad is ex-army, and now is a manager of one of the biggest NVQ companies in UK, (it's over a 10million pound industry almost $20,000,000) so ... during the 6months he's been there he's been promoted 12 times, compared to the people who haven't even been promoted yet been there for 11 years.

Madness.

My mum works in a hospital and makes medicine for sick people, so she has to be extremely carefull with what she does, as even the slightest accident or miss spelling could end up risking someones life.


Would you follow their path?

Dad- Ex army NO --- Manager of Nvq's NO
Mum- Working in the hospital ... NO
