Jara recommends the following next steps:
South by Southwest draws many creative people to Austin every year - and some of them may be local. Let your parents know that this is your career interest, even in your county they may identify established practitioners with whom the school that you're attending could arrange guest speaking sessions - or informal Zoom calls. The point is while there are many famous editors out there, don't overlook the local creative scene as a source of insights as well.
Of course, the school that you attend will likely provide exposure to a network of folks with similar aspirations.
Keep researching. With your guardians/parents' awareness of your activities, they might help you reach out to film editors via Instagram, Twitter - or through programs or colleges/universities that you're applying to.
