Paris Jackson still hasn't given up hope for having a normal life. The daughter of Michael Jackson admits in a new interview that her dream isn't to follow in her father's footsteps, but rather to become a surgeon.

"I want to help people, that's its," she tells the Daily Mail.

Thus far Jackson has done her best to have a normal childhood. She dabbled in cheerleading and women's football, delved into photography and even has a passion for music, though she doesn't plan to enter into show business. "I want to have a normal high-school experience," she says.

Even though she was born a celebrity because of how popular the King of Pop was, Jackson has nothing but kind thoughts for her father.

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

As for the masks he always made Jackson and her siblings wear, she says, "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."
