Question by Yeah Right: Paralegal or BUsiness?
I’m a college sophmore and I’m torn not knowing what i dont wanna do. I know for sure I dont want to do nursing I like bio but i do so bad), chemistry( I hate Chem with a passion). My mom is pushing me to do Paralegal but I do not feel passion about it. I have no passion for law and it doesnt even cross my mind.
As for business, I am a bit interested. I took an Intro course and liked it but I never read business magazines. HOw would I know I like business? There were times I see myself reading business articles compared to law. I like film but I took a filmmaking class and i didnt really like it. I dont wanna be a director. However, I thought of getting a business degree and becoming a producer but Im in doubt cuz there arent many female minority producers :\
