She quit her career to be a good person

She quit her career to be a good person

An unnamed lady, 25, recently quit her job as a karaoke girl to turn her life around.

Born in the city to a family with an average living situation, her parents supported her study. But she always skipped school, she says.

“At the time, I didn’t care about my future. I just wanted to have fun with my friends. When my parents found out, they said I had to stop mixing with those people or I’d have to quit my study. They gave me one last chance to improve myself but I still truanted.”

She decided to stop her study, and lived away from home with some friends.

She worked as a night club stewardess for six months and then worked as a karaoke girl.

But now, she has quit the job to come home and help with her parents’ business.

“When I was supported by my parents, I didn’t care. I didn’t know the value of money. I never knew what life would be like in that job, but when I started to earn money in that way I realized that it was the biggest mistake of my life. I hope that other people will not follow my example. There is nowhere like home.”
