I am a very ambitious person. But my father's point of view is slightly different as he thinks that if I study too much, no one will marry me. What should I do?

Question: I am a very ambitious person. In fact, I'm thinking of pursuing a career in the financial services. However, my father has always encouraged me to become a teacher and not be too ambitious, otherwise, no boy, from my community will marry me. What do I do? Teentalker , 16-year-old

Dear Teentalker,

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concerns.

It seems like you already have some  idea in terms of what career you want to pursue and that's wonderful!!! However, it is even better if you take the time to get to know yourself better and use the following tools such as SMART goals, The MPS Process, 20 things I love about myself and The Values Worksheet in order to get the much needed clarity.

The fabric of communities in most parts of the world, still expect women to follow traditional gender norms. Sometimes, there are consequences to be faced, if you dare to question the way.....
