Plus coming from a traditional asian house hold my parents didn't even want me to get the job I have now. I had to "sneak" to get it while my parents were on vacation.
And yes I got my Freedom upon recon, it said that I didn't have enough income because I put 6k, but when I called I told them to change it to 12k because I would be making more this year.
I understand your parents intentions though. They want you to finish your studies and graduate first before you begin to work. Working even for part-time can sometimes affect schoolwork and lower the grades of the student. Actually, you will be able to finish and graduate if you focus on studying for now.
There are internships anyway before graduation so you can use that chance to network and "fish" some employers that will hire you after graduation. Internships are like a stepping stone to working in your chosen career
field not just a job
. Not to put the retail associates, waiter/waitress, or other similar jobs; but working on those types of jobs when you don't need to do it is a waste of time.
Focus on your studies and graduate from school. Then you can have a career
not a job
Heck! You are one lucky person to not need to work and continue to study full time! Cherish that situation you are in. Many people want to study full time but are not able to.
Out of topic and might be personal but... out of curiosity... Were you born here in the U.S.? Immigrated when you were still a child? Or Immigrated as a teen/young adult?
