Dear ; Doctor Hakima

I’m writing to seek your kind advice. I’m a four year middle school student. I took my Brevet last June and had a pass with merit. The problem is that I’m facing a dilemma as to the choice of the stream in which I will register in the lycée. My parents want me to register in the scientific stream whereas my choice goes for the literary stream.§1

Indeed, if I decided to register in the stream of my choice, I would realise the dream of my life which consists of becoming a translator. I would work very hard to get a literary stream Baccalaureate, which would allow me to register at a department of translation at university. However, if I followed my choice, my parents would be really disappointed. They want me to become a doctor.§2

In conclusion, I’m at a crossroads in my educational career. I don’t know whether I must listen my parents or decide about what I must do with my school life on my own.§3

What should I do?
