Hello. I am a high school senior in the Northeast USA who will soon be attending college. I have been traveling abroad solo since I was 16, and I have loved every second of it. I am going to major in Computer Science at American University, DC. It’s not a school that’s known for Computer Science but I loved the general culture and feel of the campus.
I want to be a digital nomad straight out of college if possible. I can’t stand the thought of having 2 weeks of vacation a year. I’m most interested in freelance jobs that are web-design related, and where I can make good use of a CS degree.
Is this a good idea? How can I go about doing things in college in a way that will help me prepare for this digital nomad lifestyle? Should I prepare throughout my college life and do freelance jobs when I’m not doing schoolwork? Is there any good route for this that doesn’t involve doing a regular job first?
