Okay I apologize for just creating an account to post one post and maybe a few replies to this thread but my friend referred me to this site, it looks like quite a few professionals hang here. I am currently in Grade 10 and I have a dream of getting a job in the IT industry. Problem is my parents don't want me to. I was thinking of going to Uni and persuing my dream but things just look so doubtful right now and I am not sure my skills are up for the challenge that Uni might throw at me. I mean my maths isn't too flash so Coding might not be an option. Networking interests me but I don't have enough time to explore Linux inside out myself so I actually learn something and not forget it. A techie would be fine by me but it might not be a good job to have in 5-10 years time. What if it's not enough? I want to go to Uni but my family can't afford it, and a Hex bill does not sound like a fun thing to deal with either : \ I am really worried that it is too late to chase my dream working in IT somewhere. I certainly don't want to end up working on a construction site like my father is hoping : | What is every ones opinion, is it too late? Should I take my chances or search for a new dream somewhere else?
