Tama's Tales When your parents hate your career choices

Tama Vakeesan was born in Switzerland – to Tamil parents from Sri Lanka. Both she and her friend Aceko, who’s from Cameroon, had trouble convincing their parents to support their career choices. Aceko succesfully switched from banking to professional dancing, and went on to win the “Red Bull Beat It" competition in 2016. (SRF Kulturplatz/swissinfo.ch)
