On competitive Bay Area high schools and their rippling effects
Jesse Zhou

I’d like to say that this post saved me. I’m glad I had read this today, because I am going through depression from literally everything around me, especially about school. I worry a lot about my future and I always dwell on my mother’s idea of me becoming a doctor even though I have no interest in the field. I’m only in my second year of high school, and I want to thank you for writing this because I’m going to go find my passion to be happy about.
