In this episode, Amira discusses what it was like growing up as one of Jehovah's Witnesses and the difficulties she faced in school. Neither one of her parents were baptized as Jehovah's Witnesses, but Amira's mother was born and raised in the religion. Her mother, a person that didn't accept the religion as her own, allowed her mother to instill the beliefs in her daughter.
Amira tells her story about what it was like navigating her educational pursuits and the difficulties she faced trying to decide whether or not she should attend college. Mainly, because her Jehovah's Witness family didn't encourage higher education, but her academic advisors were telling her to move forward with her interests in learning.
Of course, no one talks about how much it costs to go to a four year university. So, in this episode, Amira helps other young people her age to understand the difficulties she faced and hopes to steer you in a better direction.
