    • Places & Travel

What if you wanted to study Arts and Humanities, against the wish of your parents who want you to stick with Engineering or Medicine? How would you feel if you studied in a field for a long time, and just because of 1 failed course, you could not get a degree? What if you were pressured into going to medical school and wanted to drop out? What if you managed to drop out, switched to another field and challenged aggressively to catch up with other students while being asked why you dropped out? How do you get up after being put down like that?

In this episode we invite 25 year old Hamza (U.K.), 22 year old Aiza (ISB), and 18 year old Muskaan (ISB) - 3 youngsters at different stages of their lives, to discuss their difficulties around planning their futures. Then, we offer some advice for dealing with these challenges.
