At age 6, I told my mom and dad that I was going to be a doctor because they instilled in me that it was the only way to succeed in the US.
At age 13, I told them that I was going to be a video game designer because I loved playing video games everyday after school.
At age 17, I told them that I was going to be a politician because I wanted to represent for the underrepresented.
At age 21, I told them that I was going to be an academic because I wanted to change the way people think.
At age 24, I tell them that - whether or not I become any of these things - I am going to make them proud.
