U.S Customs-Federal Agent

I want to be a U.S Customs Federal Agent because I come from a family that my uncles are in this field not the same careers but similar. This is a work field I am interested in because it's something that I'm around everyday in my daily life. My dad is in this field of work and based off the stuff he deals with and the things he does it interests me a lot.
