My father is a medical professional. My aunts are government and medical professionals.
My father told me to study hard so that I could earn my own money. When you are young, all you could really look up to are people within your family.
And at that time, majority of my family and other relatives were slaves of the corporate or government world.
I aimed to be like them. 'Coz I decided then that they are what successful mean.
I studied hard and earned a degree to become a yuppie.
