Alicia "Ali"’s Answer
So, my recommendation... do the things that interest you most today. Whether its art, computers, debate, music, etc. Just make sure you get good grades and try to take the lead in a club or sport group. This will set you apart and hopefully will help you decide what degree you do want to get into.
Alicia "Ali" recommends the following next steps:
You have your entire future ahead of you so my suggestion is you consider taking a broad range of courses ranging from Math, Sciences, Social Studies, Some vocational field like Accounting, wood work / metal work and with the world becoming smaller and more connected everyday, it's about cultures and languages like Chinese, Japanese and Korean as an example. Therefore think broadly and enjoy the next two years of high school learning : - ) Wishing you the very best.
You are indeed really young and should not stress that much. How about talking about this with your school counselor? They should be able to guide you.
Reflect on your past experiences: Think about the activities and subjects you enjoyed in the past and try to identify any common themes or patterns. This can give you a better understanding of your interests and strengths.
Try new things: Consider taking a range of courses in different subject areas. This will help you explore new areas of interest and gain a better understanding of different fields.
Research different fields: Learn more about different fields of study and careers by researching what kind of job opportunities are available, what kind of education or training is required, and what a typical day on the job looks like.
Seek guidance: Talk to a career counselor or your school guidance counselor to explore different career options and get advice on which courses to take that align with your interests.
Take challenging classes: Don’t be afraid to take classes that are challenging, you may be surprised with what you are capable of and find you have an aptitude for something you hadn’t considered before.
