Although I eventually figured out how much I enjoy mathematics during college, this realization and the decision to pursue it was not always obvious. My immigrant parents were supportive, but only after I convinced them that this was the right path for me. We can also talk about anything else, from getting started with your research career to living in an urban environment (I'm a native New Yorker.) We can complain together about how cold it can get during Midwest winters or brainstorm ways to have a life while being a serious student, even with a job on the side.
If you're pre-med and anxious about it or struggling with choosing the right major, I've been there too, and I am all ears.
