Dale – The struggles and conflicts of a twenty-one-year-old

You are 21. Talk to me about the struggles and conflicts faced by twenty-one-year-olds today?
I think one of the biggest ones would probably be people expecting you to grow up as soon as you turn twenty-one, you know it is kind of entering into adulthood. I don’t think all of us are ready for that. I think that is one of the biggest ones. Besides for that, being twenty-one is easy.

Does that pressure come from your parents or the world around you?
I would probably say more the world around me because I am not going to university like a normal twenty-one-year-old and going straight into the working work.

Is it at all possible that you place this pressure on yourself as opposed to the world around you?
I think in the back of my mind I know that I need to study but it is also a lot of pressure from everyone else.
