TALK TO STEPH: I Don’t Want To Attend Higher Institution But My Mother Is Against my Decision

I am a young lady who aspires to start a business venture. I desire to sell clothes and other fashion accessories but my mother insists I must go to school. She said it is the right thing to do. I am not academically sound. I did poorly while in secondary school and I don’t want to keep on wasting my time and my parent’s money because they don’t have very much and I don’t want to  disappoint them. But my mum is insisting I must continue my education. She says I should try and read law, that she has always wanted a child that will be a lawyer. I seriously don’t have a passion for school. I know I can sell stuff and make money. And no, I cannot do school and trade at the same time. I want to focus. Now she is saying that the reason I haven’t married is because the men that are coming are looking for graduates. I don’t know what to do. Please advise me. – Ebere

    1. No child should be forced to read a particular course. Course of study should b by choice.
    2. There’s no link between marriage and education…. Your mom is just being a mom…… Esp in Africa, mothers see marriage as a milestone
    3. Change your mind set, you r not a dull person…. You can be anything if you put your mind to it.
    4. Your mom is right! Yes you are a business person but getting educated first makes a lot a difference….
    Go to school… You must not study law but a business oriented course or any other course u like then pursue ur business…
    I’m sure you’d do great.
    Best of luck
