En Pointe (do you think that it would be likely for me to become a professional dancer?)

I'm 15 and I want to be a company dancer. I didn't start to get serious about dance until last year and that was the year I first started ballet. I have strength in my legs from other sports and other dancing that I have done in the past so do you think that it would be likely for me to become a professional dancer?

Warm regards,
