I am currently waiting to start studying in university. After all, I am very interested in taking education as I have always wanted to become an educator. I was a pure science student and achieved quite an excellent results in my recent examination. With the qualification that I have, I am eligible enough to take medicine, engineering or accountacy. However, my passion is not for these courses. I take TESL instead. Now when most of my friends are planning to further their studies in medicine, architecture, etc, I start to feel very inferior as the society's perception towards those who want to be an educator is highly distinct to those who are planning to be a doctor/accountant. So could you give me a piece of advice or tell me your own experience so that I would be motivated/constantly reminded that what is more important is my passion?
PS English is my second language.
