How do I decide what path to take?

I am going into my junior year of high school and am starting to get a lot of (unsolicited) advice from my family and friends about what I should major in when I go to college. I really like math and science and I want to do something that has a positive impact. My dad wants me to study engineering, my mom wants me to be a doctor, my brother says I should go into computer science, my friend thinks biology would be a good path… it’s all a bit overwhelming and I don’t want to disappoint anyone. How did you decide what to major in or what career path to take? Am I supposed to know what I want to do already? Any advice for how I can decide?
