Hello. I am a rising high school junior who will be taking 5 AP classes next year. I have a passion in human's rights and women's rights. For the past 5 years, all I can remember is dreaming to major in gender studies at an accredited university, such as an Ivy League, and then going on to get my PhD and teach or conduct research. I know this is a far stretch, but you've got to at least try.
Many people have turned me away from this dream, I know jobs would be hard to get, and the pay not be as much as if I pursued an AuD/PhD in audiology, which I have also been looking into.
I am cofounder and copresident of a club at my school that sends girls in Mali, West Africa to school, I am founder of my school's chapter of the English National honor society, member of Spanish NHS, I am on the math team, Vice President of my class, on two varsity sports, I am apart of a volunteering club called the horizon club, I have gotten stories published 5 times, am applying to be a student member on the county human rights commission, am interning for the League of Women Voters, interning for the National Park service (women's rights related), but am also interning under a speech pathologist in the fall to explore my interests in audiology.
I was wondering what suggestions/advice I could get considering my extracurricular activities and that now you see how dedicated I am through my extracurriculars.
Please help, I am just looking for advice and suggestions. Also any schools you think I should look into, and what you would suggest I would do for a path to go down.
