Usually people choose college because they have too, due to their parents making them or teachers; believe it or not you do have a choice on whether or not to go to college. The great thing is that it is up to you. Know there are some things you may want to consider when deciding if you want to even go to college: The first thing to consider is if you have a strong work ethic? Having a strong work ethic is important to consider because you need to be self motivated if you want to succeed in life.

But if you want to work for an employer then it would be a good idea to have a degree just so you can be ahead of the competition.
If you can afford college then great! Do it! But if you can't don't be discouraged because there are a lot of resources out their to help you in your field. The internet like Youtube and books can help educate you on your learning journey.
