  • 11. [differences and similarities] Career-wise, completely different: I don't want to work in fashion. However, my mom plays a dual role as both parent and a full-time worker, which I admire. I want to be able to play both parts as well. Also, my mom focuses on her mental well-being by being a yogi. Although I hate yoga, I want to experience life paying attention to my emotions, not ignoring them to make life easier. However, the idea of my future is constantly changing. Olivia & Mom
  • 12. [differences and similarities] The person I am today has a lot to do with the way my mom raised me. My mom has taught me the pleasures of traveling, which has really impacted my life and the way that I look at things. Because of her enthusiasm about the world I have been given amazing opportunities to be immersed in different cultures. When it comes to the smaller things, at the moment I don’t really have any specifics, and of course I am going to want to live them differently. But because she raised me she will always have an influence on the way that I live my life. Phoebe & Mom

  • 15. [differences and similarities] Rosie: I expect my life to be very different from my mother’s. My mother's mother left my mom when she was two years old and was a terrible influence on her throughout her whole life. I think my mom is such a phenomenal mother because of the lack of a mother figure she had. She wanted to be for me what she could never have. So with her wonderful influence to guide me through the beginning of my life, I will have a lot more of the support that my mother had to find on her own. Rosie & Mom
