““Do what you love” disguises the fact that being able to choose a career primarily for personal reward is a privilege, a sign of socioeconomic class. Even if a self-employed graphic designer had parents who could pay for art school and co-sign a lease for a slick Brooklyn apartment, she can bestow DWYL as career advice upon those covetous of her success.
So I just got an email from my school informing me that one of my classmate’s father’s is about to be deported. He has three children to take care of along with his wife who has cancer. Please, if you could just take the time to go to this link and sign the petition to allow him to stay here and take care of his family. As of right now, there are 525 people who have signed the petition and they need 2,475 more. Please, help if you can and reblog this!!
