Hi Tyler,

Only you can answer that question! :)
What are you interested in? Stop thinking about a "career" for one second and really think about what you love.

For example, I am passionate about animal activism. At first, I thought the only thing you can do in the "animal field" was veterinary. Boy was I wrong! I have found multiple career paths and majors that connect to my passion!

So the only advise I can give you right now is to look at what you love. Once you find that, a mentor can help you with transferring into the perfect college, with that perfect major and show you multiple options within that field!

Take care!

Hello! Tyler, as Rachelle mentioned, I too think that you need to ask your self what you love what are you passionate about? That are you good at, what can you provide to others? We all have something that can provide to others, see it as tools to help others. Do not see it as a career but as a hobby that you will be doing for the rest of your life. Choose something you are passionate NOT something you have to do. At times we look into career positions based on the salary, forgetting about the passion that we have, and that tends to be the stress we all are dealing with at our jobs. Therefore look for something that you are passionate about. Good luck!
