Too Many Choices

The wide variety of opportunities available to young women today is liberating for some, but for others it can be a source of confusion. Since young people must meet ever-higher criteria (including more schooling) in order to become successful adults in the information age, the ladders they must climb to reach adulthood are lengthening. With so many different opportunities and life paths to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you?

Giada Ripa di Meana from Italy expresses this sense of confusion: “We have so many options that we are experiencing confusion about who we are and what our place is in the world.” How do you deal with the choices presented to you in your life?
