So I am a pretty normal grade 11 kid, I have good grades (92.5% average and all level 1 courses), I'm a natural at maths and physics and I'm already weeks ahead of my physics class. My true talent is probably with computers, I taught myself a bunch of languages, like Python, Java ... I'm incredibly interested in anything physics related. I spend alot of my free time reading books like Einstein for Dummies, Brief History of Time and A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion. But I have a problem, my dream job would be to work at a huge facility like CERN but the reality is, is that, that probably wont happen. My dad is a civil engineer and I come from a middle-upper class family in eastern Canada, and a good salary means alot to me and I feel like a career in physics wont be able to give me this! Aeronautics engineering is also something I'm seriously considering, I have been always really interested in the Apollo missions and the Mars exploration missions since I have been really young. The industry is going to really kick-start within the next decade or two so it seems like a good possibility. Working for NASA developing new spacecraft is a childhood dream but like a CERN career path, it seems really unlikely! I need your advice on a possible career path, something attainable! Your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks alot!
