Andrew Li

While there’s nothing to stop parents from planning for college from the moment a child takes his first breath, the reality is that the parents of most kids have maybe 18 years before they have to make any hard decisions. But Andrew Li isn’t like most kids.

Li’s mom and dad, who immigrated from China in 1995, have found themselves firming up college plans, asking where their son will go to college just like the parents of other West Brook High School kids.

“My parents say I should go to Rice or something,” said Andrew.
