I wish to have a career that will allow me to help society as a whole. By that I mean, I want to be able to influence governments and people to change policies in their countries in order to improve, both physically and mentally, the lives of others. Additionally, I hope to have a well paying job that will allow me to live comfortably with a family. I am open to any career that will allow me to do all of the above.

I will go to a four year university and major in Political Science with a minor in International Relations or do the opposite which is major international relations and minor in political science. I will also participate in study abroad programs to gain first hand knowledge about the world that I want to help. After college, I wish to either enter the workforce directly or pursue a higher education in a field that I do not know yet. #volunteering #federal-government #public-policy #international-law

Can I major in zoology and then minor in elementary teaching? Or the other way around?

I have always had an interest in becoming a zoologist, basically since 6th grade, but I have also wanted to become a teacher for maybe first or second graders. My top choice would be zoology, but I am afraid that there won't be many jobs in my area, so I would like a backup plan. #college...
