I was born in India, but grew up here in the US. My folks demanded nothing but perfection.
However, there was one fundamental difference. My folks allowed me to choose what I wanted to do and what I wanted to be in life. But whatever choices I made, I had to be the best at it! Once again, no exceptions!
I am now employed in a field that I dreamed about as a child. It was because of their backing, encouragement and lessons learned as a child that I am successful today. I will forever be grateful for all they did for me.
