NEXT WEEK'S PROBLEM: Can I drop law for catering?

Dear counselor, I’m 19 years old and completed my senior six last year. My family expects me to join university to pursue law but that is not what I want to do.

Dear counselor,

I’m 19 years old and completed my senior six last year. My family expects me to join university to pursue law but that is not what I want to do.

I want to take a catering course and start making and selling pastries online. I shared this with my parents recently and they almost passed out. My mum says I am throwing my life away but I believe I can do this. They say they won’t help pay for this “mistake I’m making” and that if I choose to pursue it, I’m on my own. But this is my dream and I want to prove to them that I wasn’t wrong.

But where do I start?

Samantha
