“My parents weren’t as successful as they wanted to be so they really hold my sister and me up to a high expectation. They want us to be better than they ever could and they definitely helped me go farther. Even though they have high expectations they are also supportive. It’s weird because my parents have high expectations so they want me to do certain things but with college, my mom mis extremely supportive. She [said] ‘go with what you want to go for.’ She [wants me to] do what I want to do but make sure I finish out.” – Kayla Talton, 12
