Is there anyone in the Dermatology field available to help me with an Informational Interview project?

I am a junior in high school and I am in a pre college program called Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID). We are currently working on a project which is a 15 minute informational interview where we interview a professional in our dream field of study. During this interview, I will be asking questions to learn about your job and experiences as a Dermatologist. I am interested in majoring in chemistry to later become a Medical Dermatologist after high school. Thank you!

What are some extracurriculars I could do that is stem/medicine based?

I’ve had a lot of ideas on what Extracurriculars I want to do but they just seem too much for me to accomplish as a 16 year old. Some ideas I had was formulating an eco friendly sunscreen using chemistry principals but I would assume you need to have a degree in chemistry. Another idea was creating a skin cancer detecting app, or starting a program by going around to different schools, and/or community centers providing information on skin cancer and hosting events with the help of volunteers from my school. Honestly this all just seems really complicated for me to do especially without a mentor. I plan to start volunteering at a kidney center next month and get a part time job on the weekends. At the moment I am applying to stem/medicine based internships. I need some advice. I am 16 and in 10th grade. I plan to major in chemistry and I aspire to be a dermatologist.

I want to be able to get into dermatology but I am struggling to commit because I do not want to go through 12-14 years of education. Are there any other roles similar to dermatology that require fewer years? I am not interested in estheticians, however

What is like being a dermatologist? When you work as a dermatologist do you get confused or lost? Was school harder than being an actual dermatologist?

What is it like being a dermatologist? - My name is Hadleigh I like to work hard and pay attention to skin, hair and nails, I enjoy helping other people with their problems whether it is helping someone with what to do with a pimple or watching someone online to a facial and recommend skin care. ( First Question ) When you are at work as a dermatologist do you get confused or often forget what you are doing. For example say that you are in the middle of giving someone a facial and you forget what the next step is and you get confused. How do you get back on track and fix what you forgot. ( second question ) How was school was it harder than being an actual dermatologist. For example did you struggle more at school that actually being at the office. I love school and I really like to learn new things but is school for dermatology harder than being an actual dermatologist?
