Nirisha, a high school senior, is expected to work full-time in her family’s restaurant chain after graduation, where she has worked during the summer and on school breaks since middle school. Nirisha’s mother told her she could earn a salary and move into the management of the successful restaurant chain. It is obvious to Nirisha that her parents are very proud of this booming business started by Nirisha’s grandfather, who immigrated to the United States from India. It is also obvious to Nirisha that her parents intend for her to take over the business someday. However, Nirisha wants to be a graphic artist is not interested in the family business.
Nirisha has always been artistic and creative, and she has won many awards in school for her work. Her art and design teacher, Ms. Guerra, told her that she should consider attending the state university, where she could probably qualify for a scholarship. The problem is that Nirisha knows how disappointed her parents would be if she said she did not want to go into the family business. Nirisha’s parents think college is impractical. Nirisha’s younger sister, Sadguna, has a business mind, yet their father does not seem to be aware of that.
Nirisha feels torn, and she knows she should start applying for colleges soon. Her parents think she should be thinking about her future in the restaurant business. This has really started to cause problems in the family. Traditionally, in Nirisha’s family’s culture, children do what their parents want them to do, without question. No one in the family has ever talked to a therapist before, as far as she knows. Their family and extended family are very close-knit, and they do not really believe in turning to outsiders. If they had problems, they would never let anyone know it. Nirisha does not know what to do.
