Why did I pick this career?

I want to do a career that I will really love to do something, I also I want to go and see what I'm capable of doing. Not just sports and school. I would love to find a new type of fish. I would like to find where great white sharks go to give birth, I would be able to find that out. I really don’t want to be behind a desk all day and never go out, to find something out new. I want to look back and say I found that out about an animal; it would be an awesome, fantastic and outstanding job. I can help get research from animals and prove a hypothesis wrong or right.
