Things are generally a lot worse in Asia for a normal household family to become wealthy and have a good quality of life by working hard in the society.  Many Asian people who come to the United States over a long time accumulate wealth and their own success in various fields after working extremely hard.  They realize it is more feasible to accomplish success by their own definition in the U.S.  Whether an Asian student born and raised in the US or those who have immigrated here probably have parents that are probably the first generation who value hard work.  This attitude becomes embedded to their kids since early age.  This often leads to bigger pressure and expectation from the family but usually it does more good than harm.
