That's Great!!  I'm 16 and I have no clue what I might become when I'm older, I don't even know if I'm going to college.
It's awesome that you know/have an idea of what you want to do(:

This is relieving to hear because it reminds me so much of my thirteen year old self (It's been a couple years since then, but I'm still the same) ! I knew I wanted to be an author when I was 4 and a zoologist as a day job when I was 8. I knew I wanted a Ph.D from a good university when I was 9. Anyways, keep dreaming, it's good to have an idea of what you want to do and what kinds of things you're interested in young.:)

I want to go to a small college for undergrad and then a veterinary school. I want to be a Zoological Staff Veternarian or a Marine Veternarian.

I've known what I wanted to do since I was nine. I figured out my top colleges when I was twelve :3 It really helps to know early. That way you can start working towards whatever you want to be.

I was 13 but today is my birthday so now I am 14.  I want to be an author that writes a lot about teenager problems and how we see life through our eyes. My Grandmother was an author, i want to follow in her footsteps. Plus, some of her friends will sponser me, so i am so thankful for it. I still dont know what college but i hope its a nice one

How much money does an average writer make? I plan to major in biological engineering. The college I will be going to is MIT. Massachusetts Institute of Techonology. And I am only 13. I am a freshman in my school, and I am already taking Pre-Calculus, and AP Physics. Good Day .

 

And YES, I'm Asian.

Oh my God! I'm really impressed! I wish I could take AP Physics, but sadly I'm only in eigth grade. At least I'm taking the most advanced classes I can. As for the pay of an author, the average salary is 50,000 a year.

Don't worry about not taking advanced classes; you can get where you want to go with drive and perserverance, whether or not you can take classes at AP or equivalent level. And are you sure that's the average salary? Because for the vast majority of people who write, work is rejected most of the time and it is definitely NOT a full-time job.

That is the average salary for those who get published. I apologize for the confusion, I should have been clearer. And you're right, most people who write do not get published.
