How can I start a passion project of the medical field I want to peruse?

I am a freshman and I want to start creating a passion project, but i don't know how? I have an idea: Crafting Health Toolkit Initiative Project Concept: Develop a comprehensive toolkit that includes physical items made through crochet and arts & crafts, and digital resources for children's health and wellness. 'Bake for Health' Educational Series Project Concept: A series of workshops and online content that uses baking to teach scientific and health-related concepts. but I need a step by step plan on how to do this and make a difference in my community. Also I’m a freshman so I might not have the resources to do this! But I'm open for help and tips/websites to complete these tasks of mine.

How does one maintain a healthy work/life balance so that the demands of a career or academic goal do not stifle other passions?

I have always had a desire to acquire a deeper understanding of our natural world and its living processes at a molecular level. I am applying to college to pursue Biochemistry/Molecular Biology, with the hope of one day attending graduate school or even taking the Medical sciences route. I know that this will be a challenging endeavor and I am fearful that the workload and long hours will dampen my passion for Science or even stifle other areas of my life that I treasure, like my friendships, sailing and playing hockey. How do professionals maintain that healthy balance so that their studies or jobs do not become their whole identities?

Should I give up my passion?

I have two passions only. Making Art and making Music. I am a graphic design student who is doing pretty well in college and juggling my Art and Music passions. I am pretty good at both of my passions. Lately someone told me that I should focus only on one passion. There are some youtube videos and articles that supports my situation and says that it's great thing two have two passions or even more and there are some youtube videos and articles that says that you should have only one passion and put all your focus on it. There is a kinda famous artist/musician called Jack Stauber who i stumbled upon lately who is juggling the same two passions of mine in addition to animation, sculpture, stop motion, many different musical instruments, singing, songwriting, and many more. he majored in Marketing . And there is also Caroline konstnar who is ballet dancer, artist, singer, comedian, actor, content creator. My question is should I give up on one of my passions and focus only on one, which is something that I don't wanna do. Or be like these two musician/artist examples and embrace my two passions through content creation by making music and making art for my music or making music and making animation for my music just like they do. Thank You

What is the best way to find my passion?

There are a lot of things I like a little, but nothing that has made me want to do it for the rest of my life. I feel lost and confused sometimes, or like it's too late to develop a new passion (even though I know it isn't.) I am really interested in doing something creative and personal, that can make a difference. I like making things look good, and I love photography, I just haven't had a lot of experience with it because I couldn't afford a camera until recently. Sometimes I am discouraged by the fact that others are ahead of me and that I am losing precious time to develop that skill. It gets really hard when most of my life is taken up by academics and schoolwork (I prioritize my grades a lot, I am in Junior Year.) so I sometimes don't have the energy to do the things I love and improve at them. What advice would you give me?

How hard is it to find your passion in a career?

I am looking at colleges with a wide variety of majors in case I would like to change it once I am already there. I would love to try to find my passion in something earlier so I don't waste any time or money doing something I don't love.

I love art, but I don't think it is wise to major in it because of the low variety of jobs with this career. What would be some alternate options to continue my love and my personal education in art without a bachelors in it.

Could anyone have any thoughts on how to help my dilemma?

What are some passion project ideas that a student interested in the health field can do?

I'm passionate about arts and health. I've already done a passion project for art, which was curating and sponsoring a teen-art gallery to support a non-profit. Not only that, but I've done some volunteering at hospitals and Red Cross, which has been great so far. What are some ideas for a health-related project.

How do I find the motivation and passion for things that I am interested in?

I am someone who struggles with motivation and don't have a specific career I want to follow. I just want to live a good life making good money with a job I don't mind doing. How can I find my passion? Do I not know enough of myself to be throwing myself at the wind with no direction? Am I wasting time just looking for somewhere I fit in? Does my lack of future details on my aspirations and goals place me on the outside of the majority spectrum? I would like to hear some advice and guidance if there is someone who has struggled with this same mindset.

Career-wise, what sort of balance should I strike between passion and money?

This upcoming fall, I will be going off to college and there has been a lot of pressure from family and other adults for me to choose a major that will help me eventually land job that makes a lot of money. I'm still very unsure about where I want to take my future and I want to keep exploring, but I'm not sure that medicine or engineering will be for me.

I want to be an movie/tv actress and lawyer at the same time!

I’ve been wanting to be an actress since I was 3. I can also dance, I’ve loved it since I was 3. I can sort of sing. Drama is my favorite class at school. But I need something else just in case, so I plan to graduate in law and be a lawyer. I am also passionate in law, but it is a recent addition. But keep auditioning for roles. I’ve wanted to be an author or artist since I was young too. I am pretty good at public speaking/speech/acting. I have won awards and many people have said so. I’ve wrote stories and books since I was in 2nd grade. I’m pretty good at art too, it’s one fo my favorite subjects! I won many prizes for both. I get good grades too. What should I do?? I think I should go with this plan, but please help me by giving me advice! #civilrightslawyer #lawyer #law #college #acting #dancing #passion #advice #author #stories #writing #art #drama

Reaching your dream job is tough. What do you think it means to reach your dream job, and why is it so rewarding?

We all have an image of a dream job, yet was makes it a dream? Is it the hard work and persistence that makes the job rewarding. Or maybe even today it's considered a dream job because the odds of you receiving the job as a female is small. I would love to hear peoples perspectives on what they consider a dream job and why? #dream #jobs #employment #passion #motivation #success #career-advising

I love school but I've learned that I hate being in the workforce. How can I be sure to get a job I will enjoy after I graduate?

I can't stay in school forever. I graduate with my MFA (yes, I'm going for specialization), but I'm worried that after I'm specialized, I still won't be able to find a job I enjoy. #workforce #career #career-advising #finding-a-major #passion

Do you really need a passion to get into a top university?

Many college admissions officers and guidance counselors push students to find their passions in high school. At the ripe age of 15 or 16, students are expected to know exactly which career they would like to pursue and the impact they want to have in the world. However, many students do not know the answer to these questions. In fact, some never find the answer. Do you really need to have a passion to get into a top university or are there others way to showcase your intelligence and dedication? #passion #college #life #high-school

Should I start a recording studio while pursuing an undergraduate degree?

I'm majoring in Molecular Biology, and I'm planning on graduating in three years, not necessarily for prestige (though that would be cool!) but mainly because of costs. Using my AP courses, I would likely take 18 semester credit hours a year to complete the required courses on time for med school, so I'm looking forward to a busy schedule. With that in mind, I was looking for ways to make money. And so I remembered the stories I've heard of doctors who played instruments in their free time, or some physicians even starting their own studios. From that point, I thought, "What better way to fund college than doing what you love?" After recording a solo viola track for my mother's birthday with a trial AT2020 large condenser microphone, I realized that this could become so much more. It felt amazing being an audio engineer for a day and going through my own music with a digital audio workstation; you could even hear the smile I wore while performing! I believe it can have the potential to pay for itself and a little bit more towards college, but I don't have concrete numbers. The catch is that financing this equipment can be expensive, and the time commitment from taking many classes and working could prevent me from starting a recording studio. From what I've gathered online, some websites promote making music in college, but they don't go into specifics about cost-benefit ratio. Therefore my question is: Should I start a recording studio while pursuing an undergraduate degree? I apologize for the lengthy request, but nevertheless I thank you for taking your time to consider answering my question. #college-advice #music #time-management #passion #medicine
