Planning for life after graduation

Hello everybody!

I'm hoping to both discuss plans for after graduation, and get some advice.

I've known I wanted to go into a medical field for a while now. (I'm a rising senior.) But this year, I spent some quality time thinking about what I want to do within that field. What I'm thinking about now is doing humanitarian work as a physician or general surgeon. Think Doctors Without Borders type work. I know I'm pretty early to be thinking about this, but does anyone have some ideas of what I should be working on now to get closer to that? I already do volunteer work, I'm bilingual(English and Spanish), and I plan on going to medical school to become a doctor. obviously to the last one lol... So, general advice on how to get there?

For the discussion part, what do y'all want to do after highschool? Academically, career-wise, or just in general? Why have you chosen that?

Sorry for the long post, good luck this year!

Wow, you are pretty talented! If you do not mind me asking, where did you learn Spanish (website or school, etc)?

Also after high school I will be going to a great undergraduate business school for business administration, then after I will be getting a MBA. Once I am done with college I would like to become a financial advisor and hopefully lead in the government like mayor and governor. If you see me running in a few years, you will get to say that you know me haha!

I've taken Spanish in school since 5th grade, but decided I wanted to become fluent in highschool so I joined a conversational club, plus a friend of mine is a native speaker, so I practice with her.

Business is no small feat, good luck and I can't wait to see you run for office someday!
