    Well-being


    In response to Assignments 11/3, posted by Grace Tsai,
    in the thread Assignments 11/3

    Grace, I understand that you have shifted your focus from young kids who have been "left behind" when their parents move to the city to find better jobs, to young adults, who, I think, have themselves moved to the city in order to get low paying jobs and send part of their earnings back to their family back home. Are these the parents of the same kids that you were talking about before? They seem too young to have kids the age of the ones in the film you posted. I believe that you are proposing to create a product that could be used by these young adult urban migrants to improve their future employment options by learning an occupation that pays more than street vendor or construction worker (although in the US, construction pays quite well). Please confirm that I understand your new focus correctly, then I will have some comments for you about this new direction. steven
