What are your likes and what do you feel you are good at?
Do you do cartooning?
Do you like to write?
You say you are not good in the core subjects, what are your strengths?
I would love to assist you with this. Joan
The formal education is not for everyone, but with that said all parents would love to have the child exceed in College. At this point you may want to sit with your parents and re think your options for school. There are technical colleges where the focus are not on the core subjects, but real life subjects that can get you a good career. You mention writing a comic. Many of the cartoonist have no formal education, but have been to a technical school. The are of sign language can get you a job within government as a translator for the higher officials. A high skill in foriegn language can land you a Job as a translator in an Embassy. I think it may be time to sit down with your parents and discuss the possibility of a Technical institute for furthering your education where you can focus on something you would like to do rather than focusing on the core subjects that you are having problems with right now. Please do not discount the core subjects as they are important. Below are some ideas that may help you with going toward a technical career. The key is to be patient with your parents, as a Parent myself I understand how we want our child to achieve the best in life. Joan
One of my links did not post. Here it is on Frech translator jobs:
Depending where you are located, there are many Technical Schools located in close proximity to large cities and small towns. You can apply for a Pell Grant and school loans as they do offer help. It may not be easy, but you need to be open and tell your parents what you would like to do in a controlled atmosphere. Even have a meeting with your school counselor who can bring your patents in and have all of you together and discuss what will be best for you. There is no shame in going to a Technical School and getting a good Job. The key now would be to make a decision what you would like to focus on, set up where you would like to go and then present the proposal to your parents. The more prepared you are and armed with education and information on salary and possibility of a secure job, the easier it will be to get them to see it your way. I would suggest a school counselor help you and be there for support. Joan
