Study well, attain good grades and stay out of trouble in school, your community and life. Security clearances (which are mandatory for these jobs) are affected by choices WE make in life. You will note that a second language is a plus for those wishing to work in these career fields and backgrounds in I.T and the STEM fields are a plus as well.
Never lose that drive! YOU are gonna be a big success!
It's truly inspiring to witness the fervor and determination you possess to serve your nation by aspiring to join the CIA. Your vision indeed shapes who you are, and with such a vision, I foresee a promising future for you.
The first step on this journey is to conduct thorough research on your chosen career path to understand the necessary prerequisites. Once you've completed high school, consider applying to colleges that offer majors in Criminal Justice. Keeping your GPA high is crucial, as it can pave the way for academic scholarships.
Some high schools offer courses in criminal justice, so be sure to explore those. Also, take full advantage of Career Fairs at your school and don't hesitate to ask questions to law enforcement personnel when they visit.
There are internship programs designed specifically to help young individuals like you gain entry into CIA programs.
Being bilingual can be a significant advantage, particularly for undercover operations.
While you're still young, remember to work diligently and intelligently, and your dreams will surely become a reality.
I hope this guidance proves useful to you. Best wishes.
