‘Wake up, stop dreaming’ Asian parents disapprove of daughter’s choice to study arts

Every Asian child's worst nightmare.

VIETNAM – TikToker Kaitlyn recently posted a clip of her Asian parents disapproving her studies as an art major at the dinner table.

In the video, Kaitlyn was seen with tears in her eyes while she was eating due to a confrontational conversation with her parents on the future as an arts major.

Her parents nagged on about how she will not be able to support herself as an art major after graduating, to which she jokingly responded that she will find a rich husband to support her.

Her joke did not get through to her parents as they came back in full force bashing her for being short and small, and that she has nothing in comparison to others.
