My mother is forcing me to attend Antigua State College


I would really like to know why parents think that it’s a must to attend Antigua State College? They think that everyone wants to be a doctor, lawyer or accountant?

Long before I took CXC I made it clear to my mother that I want to attend ABHTI because it’s my dream to become a chef.  She didn’thave a problem at first. Now, all of a sudden because some friend of hers whisper something in her ear, she’s forcing me to go to college.

I tried explaining to her that I’ll be wasting my time going to college because they don’t offer courses for what I want to become. She told me that she will not be giving me any money to register for ABHTI and if I didn’t register for college she would stop feeding me.

I tried going behind her back to register for ABHTI, but she found out the same day because my brother who I had asked for some money to pay the registration fee, called her to find out why she forcing me to go to college. That sparked off one big argument and I was in the middle. of it.

When I got my letter from college, I was praying that I wasn’t accepted. Hoping that I would get a chance to do what I wanted. Now, I am forced to go to A-levels to do subjects that I have absolutely no interest in doing.

  2. Mommy I know you want the best for your daughter and think that going to college is the best, however it is clear that you did not attend college. If she wants to be a chef, she need to attend the hotel training school. This is where she will acquire the necessary skills and education to pursue her career. This is the best choice as state college does not offer courses to help her with her chosen profession. Please allow her to pursue her dream and pay for her studies.
