Regardless of how old you are, for people of all ages it's encouraged to start small and work up from there. Starting with low content would be easier, so while I'm no expert on wolfdogs, that's what I'd recommend. Perhaps if you're really adamant about high content, you could look into mid content? It could be a happy medium.
I'm very glad you're doing a lot of research instead of just jumping in head first. Though unless your dad is okay with having the responsibility of the animals, it may be best to wait a bit and start quite small. I don't know how the school system is in Bangladesh, but I know I never anticipated just how busy I'd be with college. At your age I was absolutely obsessed with foxes (Okay maybe I still am, but that's beside the point), and my mom was fine with me having one even. However, I decided to wait for the welfare of the animal and I'm happy I did. Now I know I'll be super-duper prepared when the day finally comes that I get a fox.
However, by no means am I trying to discourage you. If your dad is ready for it, then I say go for it. Just be sure to think this stuff through. I probably sound like the type of person you were expecting, saying no you're too young, but trust me when I say I know the feeling. I'm 17 and joined Sybil's when I was 15, and a few other pet forums when I was around 13. So while I wanted the animals for my own selfish purposes of enjoying them, not for a noble cause of education like you want yours for, I get where you're coming from.
Probably not the type of animal you want, but flying squirrels are also great exotics. Like ball pythons, they're sweet and super curious, they have a lot of personality for such a little animal. I'm not sure if it would work for you, but I've noticed when I carry around mine and someone notices him it makes for a great conversation starter. So depending on how people in your country would perceive carrying around an animal with you, something small could serve as a good way to not just reach out to people, but have them actually approach you and ask. I dunno, I went off topic a bit I guess, but I really hope everything works out for you and you can achieve your dream!
