Whether you want to be a professor or a Navy SEAL, an aerospace engineering degree and the things you do while getting one are likely to make life interesting and create career options.
I live in Texas so I immediately think about jobs at NASA. I would recommend that you begin looking at resources online. Here is a link that I like because it is a government site. Plus it has some salary information that might be interesting for you. https://www.bls.gov/ooh/architecture-and-engineering/aerospace-engineers.htm
I would add this layer to your research - what is it about aerospace engineering that attracts your attention? The job title makes me think about NASA. I would think an interest in astronomy and flying would be critical. Maybe a desire to create machines that fly or fly in something yourself. What hobbies or interests do you have today that tie to aerospace engineering? I would say that an interest in math, mechanical engineering, astrophysics, and computer programming are probably important.
There are a lot of resources online. Just start with your dreams and see if you can find your dream job through looking through the resources.
