Relationship with Classmates
There is 1 question in this category.
I am a very hardworking student. I receive top marks in my grades and I am an athlete too. I have even started to volunteer at a homeless shelter, once a week. I take my relationship with God very seriously, I confess regularly, I go to youth meetings at church and attend Sunday school. After I graduate High School, I want to apply to a university, which is a far way from home, but it is where I have wanted to go since I was 12. I have always wanted to get a medical degree and to travel the world helping the sick and less fortunate who cannot afford to see a doctor. My parents are all against it. They say that I will not be ready to live alone, but ever since I was 14 and my mum started going to Egypt and I would stay home, I was the one who did all the grocery shopping, cleaning, and cooking for my dad and brothers. Every morning before school, I prepared lunch for my brothers and I. Is it wrong of me to want to do something with my life? Are my parents right about me not being ready? I just want to do something with my life that does not involve me staying in one place wanting the best house or the best clothes. What should I do?
