Follow your heart! Do not allow anyone to tell you what you can and cannot do. If you would like to be a doctor, lawyer, businesswoman, teacher, etc., go for it! Do what pleases you because only you can decide what is important to you. If I had not followed my own heart, I may not have ended up going to college to become an elementary school teacher with a concentration in math, and may not have ended up happy with my career or life choices. I love working with children and I love math--these two things bring me joy--I am so thankful that I was able to overcome my family and friends pressuring me to pick a different career path and decide for myself! Do what you like because that, in the end, will make you most happy. You are the sum of the choices you make; YOU have the ability to make yourself happy!
