Yeah agree with Armando. Never imitate and never model your path on just one person. Take inputs from many over your life and find you own path.
Also it’s not a one time choice that applies to your entire life.
Especially students. Whether starting or finishing – the largest part of your life is still ahead of you. And you will go through decades of massive change. Careers will shift, new skills will need to be learned. Each with its own path. It’s own mentors. It’s own people to learn from.
