My career plan is leaning towards biology. Whether it’s marine biology or becoming a pediatrician. Maybe a zoologist? But I know that biology is in my career plan. Marine biologist seems like the best option.
In high school, I need courses like biology, chemistry, pre-calculus, and physics. Also, good universities include University of British Columbia, University of Victoria, and Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, but I’m too young to be packing for the university, yet.
I did some research, and found out that you have to specialize. For example, If I wanted to do marine plants, I could do “marine plants of the coast of Mexico” or, like, “seaweed”. But I want to learn about sharks: Great White Sharks.
My passion for them started when my sister and I were watching a documentary about Great White Sharks. That documentary helped me see them in a different light. How they have some cool features that most people don’t really care about. That day was my turning page when I decided that I want to be a Marine Biologist.
Marine Biology is a hard subject to go into. The field is very competitive. So I might or might not have a chance of pursuing my dreams. But I still have backup plans: pediatrician, zoologist, doctor. Maybe even a journalist. My goal is to stay within biology, mainly animal biology.
But I have a lot of time to decide my future, so I’m going to take it slow, and live every moment of it.
