I’m almost a junior in high school and am struggling to pick a career path. I feel like a lot of my friends know what they are doing, and I don’t. I know people can go into college as an undecided major, but I do not want to resort to that. I also want to start taking classes and extracurriculars that align with my major. I used to want to be a doctor, but now that I think about it, Its scary to be in school for like 15 years. Im not afraid of hard work, but I want to have kids possibly before 30, and that isnt as well accepted by other students and teachers. basically a negative stigma around being pregnant during school, (I also just dont want to do that hehe). and a lot of my family are doctors but they studied in different countries and I dont really want to do that. Everything else about being a doctor does sound pretty great though.
Another factor is that I do want to be paid a good amount, and be happy at the same time. 150k + is ideal. My parents are both IT managers. and I’m Asian btw so high expectations and limited options(not to be stereotypical). I just want to travel the world and go on vacations in the future, so a nice paycheck is a must. I am not that interested in computer science, but I’m willing to learn it. I love science and do really well in math. My personality is smart, hard-working, and compassionate. Basically, let me know if anyone has any career and college major recommendations. sorry this was long.
