Where should I start?


I am a freshman majoring in Cyber Security (second sem at uni). I want to get started (not like I am a newbie and don’t and know anything about this field I just know very basic things a Tech-Enthusiast would know) but don’t know where to start, some say pentesting or bug bounty while others say you should start on the defensive side. I also looked up the [https://www.cyberdegrees.org/](https://www.cyberdegrees.org/) website for the fields in cybersecurity. But I am just confused and don’t know where should I start. I also want to get an internship at the end of my second year. So where should I start?

My recommendations are to get Network+, security+, and get an AWS Cert (CCP and associate solution architect), learn basics of ethical hacking (hands on, if you need courses I can recommend some) and learn bash and python, master Linux. I used Udemy/youtube for all my studies

Do lots of outside learning, schools are often behind. These are things I wish I did while i was in school but I was also working as a internships for my last two years so didn’t have time.
