Note to students: Train for a career that makes you, not someone else happy. Some people have a straight line career and know early on what they want to do. But don't be afraid to change course until it becomes clear what career will make you happy and fulfilled.
Note to parents: Acknowledge you child's efforts and reward him/her with your support. I've enjoyed interacting with your child and am looking forward to interacting for the next several years. Hopefully I can be of some benefit.
