Where To Go?
So, you are in high school and you have no idea what comes next. You are not alone!
Being in high school, but having to try to figure out what comes next is not an easy task. Maybe someone in your class has been drawing designs for years and know they want to do architectural engineering, perhaps one of your friends will go into nursing because they have always wanted to care for others.
Then, when you evaluate your options you feel confused. You like fixing the car with your father, cooking with your grandmother, and enjoy Choir, Math and English classes. So, where does this leave you? You could look at what your family members are doing, or you could ask your friends what they can see you doing for the rest of your life, but ultimately, it is your decision.
Take a look at the Spotlight page to read some advice from young professionals.

No way is the "right" way, always remember that! Just explore what your interests are, what your talents are and what job options those match up with both your talents and interests. Exploring is not a bad thing, but it would help if you did a little research to help with your exploration. That research starts here!
