How do I become a software engineer?

Ever since, I always wanted to have a job in the engineering sector. But since my parents initially wanted me to become a doctor, I got a premed degree but I hated it. I took a call center job. I thought just for a breather but 6 years later I resigned. Now I’m doing career change. I can’t go back to school to get an engineering degree, and I read on blogs, entry-level software engineering doesn’t strictly require a CS degree. Should I go ahead and master specific niche first like Data Analytics, Programming, etc and work my way up?

I loved Math. I’m good with computers. And I can independently solve problems.
