What did you want to be when you grew up and did it change, if so when and why?
A brain surgeon, actress, unicorn owner. Instead I'm a writer. It's basically the same thing.
I think I wanted to be a Zamboni driver. My career goals changed and decided to prolong the job decision indefinitely.
I wanted to be a lawyer, probably as the result of watching too many 1980s legal dramas on television. I actually work as a university lecturer teaching English Literature and really just stumbled into it by chance. As it turns out, I love my job.
I always wanted to work with kids I never thought of doing anything else really. I have been doing my job for the last 6 years and still loving it.
I wanted to be an Action Man. Look, look! I can do the eagle eyes.
I wanted to be a Paediatrician but that changed because parenting came in the picture. And my focus changed to being a mother so my dream is no more.
When I was in third grade, I had the most wonderful, inspiring, motivational teacher. It was then that I decided I wanted to be a teacher. When I was eleven, I was in a bicycle accident, fractured my skull, and it was then that I decided I wanted to become a special education teacher.
I seriously wanted to play Professional Darts as a kid... I would still love to, and while I am nowhere near good enough I still hope that one day it will magically all come together and the dream becomes reality...

What did you want to be when you grew up? Did your wish come true or are you still "growing up"?It is true we have great plans for our careers and our future in general and then life happens. As an adult is there something you still want to be when you grow up?
