Career Decisions

Dear Highlights,
I have so many things I want to be when I grow up. I don’t know what to do.
Madeline, Washington

It’s great that you are thinking about a career. It shows that you want to be thoughtful and responsible about your future. Still, you don’t need to worry about making a decision right away. You have many years ahead of you to figure out what you want to do.

It’s good to remember that you don’t need to have only one job during your life. Many people switch careers, and some people even have different careers at the same time.

You could ask a librarian to recommend books on careers that interest you. Your parents may have helpful thoughts to share with you too. In the meantime, keep pursuing subjects you like and doing things you enjoy. That will also help set you on the right path.
