What about what I want…

Posted on: November 4, 2011

So I want to be a bio-medical engineer and my mom REALLY wants me to be one.  I do a lot of community service and I have high grades in school but I get really excited if my club is planning a fundraiser event and so I’ll tell my mom about it and she’ll always reply with you do too much you need to focus on school.  I hate it.  It hurts.  It’s like I love to volunteer and plan fundraisers and help people but she doesn’t support me.  She always tells me I need to not and focus on school.  I am focused on school.  I have amazing grades! I don’t know what else I can do.  It’s so frustrating.  And I want to do a self-sustainability project senior year but she wants me to do something on engineering.  This is my second year doing an engineering project, most students don’t even do anything career related for their projects.  It’s something I’m really interested in and have been doing fundraisers for since freshman year.  I just want her approval.  Also, I really like Columbia University, but she doesn’t want me to even consider about it because of the liberals.  It’s so hard wanting something and having her not want that for me.


I just don’t know what to do.  Every time we talk about these things I end up crying and she ends up yelling.
