Imagine growing up in a family with rigid gender roles, where your education is not valued simply because you're a girl. That's the reality for one woman who, despite her parents' expectations, secretly applied for college, got accepted, and worked her way through an engineering degree. Now, after years of barely speaking, her parents want to reconnect. But she has one condition: they must pay her back the $100k her degree cost, just like they did for her brothers. 💸👩‍🎓
