You should find someone who can pump up your confidence by practicing interview QA with you! It is really agame in which you take whatever background you have and learn to sell your good attributes. Good luck!!!

You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.

My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events. When I finally do visit them all they can do is comment on my weight or how I look - basically anything they can nitpick about my appearance, and then guilt me for not visiting them more. Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?
