Description


This book is designed to help you build your dream life.


To accomplish this goal, you will learn about pursuing your dreams from the undisputed experts: immigrants. Year after year, millions of well-meaning, but often overbearing, parents immigrate to America to bring greater socioeconomic opportunity to their families while pushing their children to enter highly-regarded, highly-paid, and highly-stable professions. The result: Millions of kids who feel that they must choose between living a life of their own or receiving the support and love of their parents.


Doctor, Lawyer, Engineer: How to Pursue Your Dreams without Giving Your Parents a Heart Attack answers:


  • Why does the pressure to pursue these careers exist?
  • Do these careers pay off as parents expect?
  • What are the psychological/financial implications of this pressure?


Read stories from children of immigrants who charted their own path, such as Yvonne Orji who traded med school for a comedy career and now plays a main character on HBO's Insecure.


By the end of the book you will have learned how to build a fulfilling and economically viable life for yourself, all without giving your parents a heart attack.
