Honestly, do well in high school. Go to a good college. Get good grades in college. Explore what interests you and don't be dead set on career at this point. You have lots of time. I went to college planning on being a chemist...I ended up taking an EMT course to make extra cash while I finished my degree. I decided I hated chemistry and liked medicine. Now I'm an ER doc who sub specializes in poisoning and drug overdose. In retrospect, it is pretty obvious, but I wouldn't have guessed that would be the outcome when I was in high school.
