She might have been raised in the spotlight, but Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, has her eyes on a career that's far away from the public eye.

The 15-year-old wants to be a surgeon, a heart surgeon no less, so she can fulfill her wish of helping others. "I want to help people, that's it," she told the Daily Mail Sunday's Event magazine.

"I have lots of memories of my father. He was an incredible father. We all loved him to death," Paris said, continuing, "He'd try to educate us as much as he could and was always looking out for us. He was very protective."

Paris went on to explain that the King of Pop wanted to give his children the childhood he never had, which is why Michael always had them wear face masks while out in public. "He didn't want anyone to see what we looked like. That way we could have what he didn't, which was a normal childhood," she explained.

On par with her altruistic future plans, next on Paris' list is restoring the Neverland ranch, which she wants to bring back so that less privileged children can enjoy it. "I cried and cried," Paris recalled of the moment she saw the estate's Ferris Wheel was gone. "It’s beautiful there," she added, "It still has good energy."
