a thinking teen

I know a young man who’s paying for college with his own money. While this may not be that big a deal in the US where most kids work to pay for college, here in Asia, it’s usually the parents who pay.

It’s quite sad that many teens take this privilege for granted. Instead of making good grades, they’re wasting their time having fun. This young man tells me he’s had to work multiple jobs sometimes just to make ends meet.

Right now, he’s got a small business venture going with a few of his friends. He knows he needs some paper qualification to get his foot in the door if he wants to make it good. I can see he’s got some pretty sound thinking behind everything he’s done.

As a mom, I’m thinking, wow, this kid sure should be a role model to all the other kids out there. Seriously I think his mom must be really proud of him.
