Carter’s Answer

After 10th grade I would highly recommending pinpointing your current passions and ambitions and researching what programs exist out there to help create some of the technical skills needed for a future career in your area of interest. These programs exist for almost every passion out there and it is a good way to boost your high school resume while at the same time providing you the skills necessary to excel at what you love.

For example:

If my passion is film some questions I would think about are what clubs exist at my school or in my local area that are related to film? Is there an intro screenwriting course I can take? Is there an filmmaking camp or summer program? Are there acting programs I can do?

I would also look at college's specifically and programs they offer to high school students.

I've listed some links I found based upon a quick search for highschool filmmaking programs - don't be afraid to just google your passion and see what is out there that can develop your skills!

Hi Granny!

This is a great question to have and I think that the answer is quite simple: do the things that you like to do. You listed singing, cooking, and reading as some of your favourite hobbies--those are all super great and it's awesome that you can identify what you enjoy doing!

I would suggest keeping on doing those things and finding out ways to do them with other people too. Is there a book club at your school? If not, would you want to make one? Does your school/community have a choir that you can join? Also for cooking can you start a blog or create a personal recipe book?

Long story short: continue doing the things that you like to do and maybe even branch out to do those things with other people :)

Hi! Highschool is an exciting time in one's life and it is the perfect time to explore areas of interest! Maybe this summer you could look around for a job in your community. I was a summer camp counselor at my local high school and it was the perfect way to make money while helping others!
