Best quote from this talk:

Hi. Good morning.
Hello. Thank you for having me. So, let’s get started with my TED Talks. My very first time.
So, I am the last born in my family that follows and honors traditional values. My oldest sister is a lecturer, and my second sister is working for the public sector, and their paths are exactly the same as my parents expected –finishing college, getting married at the age of 24, having a job, and then having kids.
And my parents expected me to have the same path.
In my sophomore year of high school, when both of my sisters both got married, my family got a big debt. I still remember my parents, they had to get up every day, work very hard to make sure that I still got a decent life and a good education, regardless.
