这是一个女孩与梦想的故事

上个月高考成绩放榜,几家欢喜几家忧,成绩很重要,填写志愿也同样重要。是要留在省内还是去外省闯荡?是选择有“钱途”的专业还是选择自己喜欢的专业?最近这些话题也频频上热搜。近日,来自湖北的留守女孩钟芳蓉高分报考了北大考古专业,网友一片哗然,我们一起看看到底发生了什么吧!

考古女孩

Zhong Fangrong, who sat for this year's annual national college entrance examination, or gaokao, scored 676 out of 750 and ranked fourth in Hunan province, making her eligible for admission into any university of her choice.

钟芳蓉寒窗苦读数十载,在本次高考中取得了676(满分为750)的好成绩。她在湖南省内排名第四,这个分数可以让她自由选择学校。

钱途?

However, when she applied for majoring in archeology from Peking University, many people on social networking sites reacted saying the subject has little economic prospects and that Zhong better apply for a "money-related" major such as finance or economics so that she can make more money for her family.

然而,她却报考了北大考古专业。很多网名都说这个专业没“钱途”,她应该选择一些更好就业的,更容易赚钱的专业,比如说金融、经济,这样她就能给家里多赚点钱了。

"Arts and humanities are too luxurious for someone from an average-income household," one commenter said on social media platform Weibo.

The arts have traditionally been overlooked as a career choice because the job market in China has long favoured talents in finance, science and advanced technology to feed the country’s rapid economic growth.

在中国,文科类专业作为一种职业选择一直在被忽视。中国就业市场更喜欢金融、科学、尖端科技方面的人才,因为这些人才更适应飞速发展的经济需求。

The comments were a reflection of the societal pressure lower-income families face to climb the social ladder instead of following their dreams.

这些评论也反映出低收入家庭向上爬的压力,生活的压力让他们更注重未来收入和前途,而放弃了追逐自己的梦想。

每个理想都值得被尊重

看到微博上各种或支持、或反对的评论后,8月2日,钟芳蓉在微博上发了这样一段话:

“I' ve loved history and artefacts since I was young. I have also been influenced by Ms Fan Jinshi, that's why I signed up for this major," she wrote on Weibo on Sunday. "Thank you for all your encouragement."

选原来,择考古专业并非是一时兴起,而是多年来的坚持和热爱。因为热爱,所以钱和名利才会显得微不足道。

The incident had aroused so fierce discussions on social networks that archeological institutions nationwide sent gifts and best wishes to Zhong, while Peking University also expressed their wishes to her.

钟同学的专业选择在网上引起了激烈的讨论。各个 考古圈集体发声,为她送上礼物和祝福。

Since then, Fan has sent Zhong a handwritten letter, as well as an autobiography about her years in Dunhuang, according to media reports.

"Don't forget your dreams, persevere and focus on your studies," Fan wrote.

结语

Maybe archeologists do not make a lot of money, but choosing the subject as a major is no guarantee one will find a well-paying job upon graduation, or a low-income one for that matter. One's future, including what one is likely to earn, is decided more by how excellent one is at one's work than by what subject one majors in. For example, majoring in finance is no guarantee one will end up becoming a millionaire, just as studying computer science is no guarantee one will become the next Bill Gates.

可能考古学家赚不了多少钱,但是选择专业不等于选择工作,专业并不能保证你一毕业就能有高薪工作或仅提供你低薪工作。一个人的未来,包括他或她未来能赚多少,是取决于他或她自身的工作能力,而不是专业选择。比如说,选择金融并不能保证让你未来成为百万富翁,学电脑科学也不会确保成为下一个比尔·盖茨。

There are no "hot" or "happening" subjects to begin with. Everybody has to ultimately work hard for a promising future. Here's wishing Zhong a fruitful time at the university and a dream job to her and her batchmates upon graduation.

并没有所谓的“热门”或“新兴”专业,每个人都需要努力工作获得美好人生。祝愿钟同学可以拥有美好丰富的大学生活,祝愿她和她的同学们毕业后能找到心仪的工作。

如何是你,你会选择金钱还是理想?
