I want to photograph all aquatic life around the world, and to be precise I want to be a Marine Biologist Photojournalist. To travel is a passion as is photograph so to do what I love; I would never have to work a day in my future. I could capture pictures of the Indus River Dolphin which are endangered, and help promote environmental or animal conservation. I could also help inspire future scientists in aquatic fields, which may one day lead to cures for diseases we are fighting right now and an alternative clean energy source.
I was inspired by photographers in National Geographic to peruse what I want to do so I hope to at least do that for one person some day. I was told I should go to school to do what is economically stable, and I started to do as they said, but this is my life and I will be what I want when I want it even if I change my mind a million times. Just means I will be able to do a million and one things.
The first thing I would do is get my education to get the job I want, which is working for National Geographic as a photographer. They like people to have a bachelor’s degree in something. So I will get my Bachelors in Marine Biology then apply to work for National Geographic. This will be my future of never having to work a day.
