I think that is the biggest thing for parents to understand and kids having those conversations, late high school, even late college for what's going to come after graduation is being proud of what they've already accomplished and just supporting your kids through that.
Imagine being a classically trained ballerina, only to find yourself in college with no initial plans to be there. That's the fascinating story of Ashley Myers, shared in this episode of The Mayo Lab Podcast with David Magee. Ashley opens up about her unexpected path to higher education, the challenges of falling out of love with a lifelong passion, and the courage it takes to stand up for oneself.
