I’m (21F) an Indian student who is gonna do her 18 month PG in Design starting August (I’ll be 23 when I complete). That’s the only proper qualification I will have in the field since I did a BA in a very different field. I want to move abroad to live a better life but just this one creative qualification will not be enough so I want to do an advanced diploma in Canada. But it’s gonna be for 3 years. I’ll just turn 24 if i choose to go and may finish by 27 and then work.
My Dad said don’t worry about the costs and do whatever you wanna do to get educated. But then he also said something like “But see properly because you don’t wanna go on studying for the rest of your life, right?” and I feel like he was hinting towards my age and how I won’t be properly working till 27. Because Indian mentality is you have to get married within your 20s, anything after is old, nobody will marry you.
