I wish you the best of luck. The struggle for folks is finding something they like versus a sustainable job that is within your reach that your family or friends will approve. A lot of folks tell the younger folks to give it a try, but have a back up in case. It's worth pursuing because the journey does mean something.
I thought about video games. I don't think I have the right set of skills for it. Plus, the controversy for video game journalism due to Gamer Gate made me a bit soured about the video game industry.
I haven't taken foreign language except 2 years of Chinese and 2 years of Spanish in high school. Found out I was good at Spanish and loved it more Chinese and my native language Khmer, but I couldn't pursue or add it as an extra class in college because I had to prioritize bottle neck classes and major classes. Plus, Spanish classes gets fill up easy. I started to forget what I learned since I had no one to talk to in Spanish until I became a wiki mod.
You can read this thread: Need Spanish Translators in Wiki because I ran into Spanish wiki editors during moderation which is the weirdest but coolest, unique experience I seen. I wouldn't have seen it if I was a mod. I didn't know how much international users we had until I got into deeper into the wiki community.
