Hi Samya,

The short answer is yes, anything is possible.
If you put money aside, what is it that makes you want to go into acting versus being a lawyer or IS officer? Why are you drawn to these three choices? If the only answer is making lots of money, it may not turn out to be a satisfying career for you. However, if you’re interested in the field, you may find that you enjoy the work more than you thought you would.

How much acting have you done so far? I’ve worked with a lot of students who think that they want to go into some branch of performing arts, but after they do it for a while, they become a bit tired of it. It can also be extremely difficult to get jobs in that field. So, it’s worth considering how intensely you are willing to work towards being successful in your career, how resilient you are to rejection, and how comfortable you are with the job outlook for acting Vs law Vs IS officer.

A common compromise for many people is to choose the safer career path, but continue to do the art for fun. Many towns have smaller community theatres, and put on performances cast entirely from willing members of the general public. This allows people to do a job that earns some money and provides a clear career path, but still enjoy acting as a hobby (or singing, directing, costume design, etc.). It’s difficult to go in the opposite direction; people employed full time as actors are seldom able to practice law in their free time.

You are a student, so my best advice for you right at this moment is to explore. Try out acting through your school’s drama club or a community theatre. Try to set up an internship or shadowing experience with an IS officer or lawyer. Talk to your teachers and your guidance counselor/academic advisor to find out what kinds of courses and certifications you’d need for each job. Do some research online about job outlooks and employment opportunities in each field. Try out as much as you can, whether it’s experience in the field or a class about it. You’ll begin to figure things out as you go.

Good luck with your decision!
