Expectations of Success

Living up to your parents’ expectations can be a challenge. That pressure is often heightened when your parents sacrificed everything they had to move to a brand new country to make a better life for their families. In this episode, host Karina Zapata speaks with Crystal Wai from Calgary, Michelle Au in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Tausif Syed in Victoria, B.C. about how they try to make their parents’ sacrifices worth it through their success. We discuss how it can feel like you’re never doing enough, as children of immigrants.
