  • Mar 15 2013: I believe that gifted and talented individuals are held back by todays financial hardships.

    The increase in the price of living and education has a negative impact on the possibilities these individuals may choose in their pathway to happiness and success ,whatever that may be defined as.

    It seems a struggle if you are not financially supported to really take the opportunity to make the most of their creativity and talents.
    • Mar 16 2013: agreed..
      countries like India are starting to help their citizens with the cost of tuition, while in Mexico no bank will help you.

      in others like USA this assistance is old news, yet at the gross price of tuition that they are charging each person, the student ends up in huge financial debts

      that's a nightmare!
