Never be afraid to try something new. Pay attention to your strengths and make them even stronger. Work on your weaknesses until they are stronger. Don't believe what your parents told you, you can do and be anything you want. Research, research, and research some more until you find the information you are looking for. Other people are willing to help you, but you have to ask them first. Trust your gut. The resources are out there, you just have to know where to look. Think outside the box. You can do it!
