Hi. I'm 13 years old and I am going to be 14 very soon. I really want to become an eating disorder psychologist when I'm older. I am in year 9, and will be choosing my options very soon, and I want to make sure I get it right
I know that being a psychologist will take a lot of dedication and hard work anyway, and I have been researching the different qualifications that I may need.
I want my CV to look good when I move on into the work industry, and I am keen to begin now. To achieve the job I want, I am planning on doing things such as charity work and babysitting, so I have experience with children. I was thinking of joining police cadets, and so on.
I was wondering if anyone has any advice or suggestions? I am willing to do what it takes, I would appreciate some guidance however.

As far as i know you can't just be a psychologist working with eating disorders (I suppose you might if you work in a specialist clinic but those jobs will be very rare). You'll need to train as a clinical psychologist which will involve a lot of work in other areas too. What you do now isn't that important- it will be when you are in uni that will be important experience (and beyond)
