Brown Asian girl thinking of commuting for masters watch

    • Thread Starter

    Okay so basically I'm in my final year as a undergraduate and am thinking of carrying out a masters degree away from home. I guess there's a couple of reasons for this but the main reason is because nothing close to home is interesting me in terms of what to study. I don't want to choose a masters degree that I don't have much interest in, just for the sake of staying home - that would be a waste of time and money.
    But being a Brown Asian girl, which I think a lot of girls can relate to, it's not so easy to just move out and study away from home. I don't think there's much point in getting into the whole cultural reasons behind why a lot of parents don't allow their daughters to, and I'm pretty sure my dad is one of those parents who wouldn't.
    So with that being said, I can give it a try and see if I can convince him to. I am looking around somewhere more closer to home to see if the course I want to do is something not just that university does, but others do too. I'm not really having much look and from what I can see so far I'm probably going to have to commute either way. Is there any way I can convince my dad to allow me to commute without him focusing so much on culture? I know my dad can trust me to do this, and it's also a really good way to take on responsibilities which I've never really had to do given that I've spent 20 years of my life living at home. And even though this would also be a good thing I could say to my dad, he might (being Asian) just see it as me just being eager to move away from home for a little while.

    Any help?
