## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi - I'm a 13 year old and I am incredibly interested in theoretical physics.

I have studied physics since the first grade. I love math and physics to possibly a fault. However, I'm scared that I do not have what it takes to become a theoretical physicist. I have studied my way up to vector calculus, but I don't know if I could someday make an important discovery or write a Ph.D. thesis. I am currently rereading Fundamentals of Physics and An Introduction to Mechanics. I need a physics and mathematics mentor to teach me the things I need to know, like how to actually make a discovery, or teach me about QED. I was wondering if anyone has any advice for me?
