Uniting differences

Communicate openly to bridge that generation gap, says Heineken in its latest ad campaign

You would rather be a musician, but your parents want you to be a doctor; or perhaps you’re a lawyer by profession, when in fact, you would rather be a dancer. These stories are as real as they can get: career ambition versus your parents’ wishes, pursuit of your true passion versus settling for social norms. It’s often quite a struggle for people on both ends of a generation gap to discuss these issues.
