The Challenge Topic
The big question we're brainstorming on will be:
"How might college students and graduates in Asia support themselves and each other to discover their future path?"
Young people in Asia (especially in college and after graduation) often feel a lot of pressure to decide their future based on the expectations of their family or society, even if they aren’t satisfied with those choices. It can also be hard to understand one’s own interests or passions, as well as what opportunities and needs there are in the world. Sometimes, it can also take courage to create one’s own path because the right one may not exist yet.
We want to ask ourselves, and all of you: What are some ways that young people can understand themselves and the world more deeply to decide what steps to take for their future direction?
Awesome! Where do I start?
