I'm 38, is it late for me to start studying tv production and become a famous producer? I'm not white & non-native English speaker.?

I'm 38 years old, non-native english speaker (i'm originally persian) but i'm fluent in English, and I have a bachelors degree in computer science and masters degree in education from Canada. However, my main interest has always been in tv production and would like to become a successful tv producer in US (all my family live in US in LA), I wonder if 38 is too late for me to study tv production and to become a successful tv producer there? I have passion and strong will to put the effort into it.

    It's not that late to become a TV producer....... Sir Patrick Moore started a career presenting the UK's longest running science show on the BBC in 1957 at the age of around 34, and kept on going with it until 2012 when he died at the age of 89.

    Whether you become famous at it is anyones guess, though.... but anything's possible if you look at some of the older generation making a name for themselves on YouTube (which requires similar skill to TV production, and there's a number of YouTube channels which run like a full blown TV production).

    Cowboy Kent Rollins is gaining quite a following for his YouTube channel at the ripe old age of 63.

    Then there's also a car repair YouTuber called Scotty Kilmer, who previously had a car repair show on the local CBS Affiliate in Houston, Texas.... but then turned his hand to doing it on YouTube instead so he could be more unchained in what he was able to say without having to worry about upsetting TV sponsors.... he's still growing strong on YouTube at the ripe old age of 67.

    It is not too late at all.
