I married a dentist. All is forgiven. 😉

I don’t think so. Perhaps it’s because my asian parents never set that standard on me. Frankly, I’m glad I went into advertising, allowed me to take what I know and am passionate about and blend it all into a career.

My parents just paid for college, never asked which degree I'll study as long as it's in a good university they can brag about. Never asked about my job and were happy to help supplement the low income in the first two years. Maybe I got lucky 😂

A mortgage is a mortgage. It is just advertising.

Oh I disappointed them long before that. Particularly when I lost my scholarship my first term in college and then dropped out of the architecture school (was one of 12 undergrads accepted before freshman year). That was fun. But now I get paid to brainwash people! I might as well be a doctor!

funny

As immigrants, they are proud I put myself through college and love that I’m successful in advertising. Follow your passion, money and success will come. Your happiness comes first.
