Ignite your future and follow your dreams, is the motto for this year's Southeast Worlds of Work Career Expo.

Students from 15 counties and 3 states had the opportunity to explore 10 industries and talk to professionals.

One students already has her career path mapped out after high school.

Dymond Hamilton from Roulhac Middle School says "I want to be a neonatal nurse because I like babies and working with them and also it runs in my family and I want to show my mom that I can do something good for her and I can protect her and take care of my mom."

While some know what they want to do after high school, others are just finding their way.

The expo is preparing students to think about the next step.

One main goal today was allowing students to see the value of a four year degree or two year degree depending on the career.

The expo continues Thursday. For the first time high school juniors and seniors have been invited to attend the event.
