I just heard that you decided against starting a career in the fashion industry. I am writing you, because I don't think that this is the right thing for you to do. I know that your father is sick and needs you at home and in the restaurant but I think you should not forget about your own dreams. Don't you think you could talk to your father and find out what he thinks about it? Maybe you can find a solution together. After all, I think what your father wants the most is for you to be happy.
So, don't give up your dreams that easily.
