As an only child of an immigrant, lower-middle class, family from China, I was always told that education comes first. And only if I could succeed in grade school would I be admitted into a prestigious university, and then be offered a good job. Since elementary school back in China, it was engrained in me that I needed to receive highest scores on exams and report cards in order to succeed. Once, I had received a 98 on one of my math final exams.
This past Tuesday, the single adults in the Ann Arbor community came together for The Night Life event hosted by members of the Focus Ministry of HMCC. It was a fun night of music and discussion as we tacked the issue of the "quarter life crisis."
Last week, many in the Focus Ministry –the single adults of HMCC –were able to reach out to those living in the Ann Arbor community through The Night Life and the Focus Spookfest!
The Night Life event was a great success, as many friends and co-workers came out to dialogue, listen to live music, and drink some great Sweetwaters coffee and tea.
