The Second Generation Advantage
When things get tough I reflect on all the things my parents went through. Whatever problem I’m facing pales in comparison to the immigrant struggle. Coming to a new country, not speaking the native language and trying to feed your family.
All the sacrifices my parents made for me, I feel that I have no choice but to succeed. Many of my second generation friends share that sentiment. The ability to brush off a challenge or obstacle because of what our parents have lived through is the second generation advantage.
