    But I am still insecure. To make a decision which would have consequences to my surrounding and the people I feel connected to is so frightening to myself.
    If you want something, go for it. No ifs, no buts, just go ahead and do it.

    Probably finance/consulting or tech then evaluate a transition to something else (staying, buyside, corporate, entrepreneurship etc) when the time comes. Maybe or maybe not do an MBA.

    End goal is to be a partner/MD in finance/consulting or a senior executive (either founding/co-founding or working for one). Worst case - junior exec (i.e. junior VP or general manager).

    Or I could just sod it all and stick to being a software engineer or 'get gud kid' and pursue quant finance. We shall see.

    I would love to transition into being a philanthropist after my career (and maybe even an ambassador or a high level policy adviser).

    You sound very organised. I would love to be a philanthropist but then again I have many aspirations regarding my future career including writing, work for the UN, campaigning, charity work and philanthropy, with a bit of travel along the way 😄

    A career where I'm financially secure, one I like and to AVOID retiring at 78.
    Sensible idea about financial security, anything you're passipnate about in particular?Also, should retirement be a goal? Personally, I don't want to retire until I have to, though that is obviously subject to fluctuation and change.

    I have no idea.

    The plan is to stay in education for as long as possible, so I don't have to decide.

    What changed your mind? Either career sounds good in their own right.

    Well maybe you should keep your options open if you don't have anything in mind as a career?

    I'd love to go into medical research especially into viruses and bacteria! They're just so fascinating that they're so deadly and yet so small. Maybe even be a university lecturer afterwards but that's thinking too far ahead for me right now!
