What did you want to grow up to be when you were young?

When I grow up I want to be famous, I want to be a star, I want to be in movies. I want to see the world, drive nice cars, I want to have groupies. Yeah right!

When you were little what did you imagine you would become?

Perhaps you wanted to be in a high flying career such as a doctor, a lawyer, a surgeon or a vet?

Or perhaps your imagination made you dream of being a fairy, a superhero, a mermaid or an animal?

Did you become that thing you dreamed about as a child?

Well I wanted to be a Nun.
Then at age 13 someone told me...you have to be a Catholic.
I knew I wasn't a Catholic, so I just waited...waited...waited.
In my 40's I joined the Salvation Army, as a Solider(uniformed).
Then I wanted to work in ministry in Gaols...and a few years later I did.
I am still working in ministry, and I always knew my passion...was to serve people, and of course God......At nearly 60...I'm very happy.
I was somehow intrigued by the sky and wanted to be a pilot or an astronaut. Slowly the dream kept changing and by age of thirteen I decided to be a doctor. And have pursued that dream, I am a doctor.
I wanted to work at Battersea Dogs home when I was young. First I wanted to be a vet, but didn't want to have to deal with all the gory bits, so downscaled my ambitions.

When I got into sci-fi, I also had a brief period where I wanted to be an astronaut.
A checkout lady at the supermarket! I remember thinking they looked glamorous when I was little. I fulfilled my dream at 16yrs and got a job in a local supermarket. Had that job for a few years while studying, and soon realised it was not for me :)
I don't recall, but according to Mum, I had asked her which was the highest paid profession (at that time), to which she replied Doctor and I recoiled saying I was scared of blood. So, I apparently asked which was the second highest paid, she replied Lawyer and I said, "OK, I want to be a lawyer since I like to talk so much." Haha. I was 4. Today, I "talk" through words as a full-time writer and editor.
I remember wanting to be a mermaid and a fairy so badly. I had fairy things all our my room and wings. I wanted to be a mermaid after becoming obsessed with the movie 'The Little Mermaid'. That movie and it's music rocked! When my niece was about two she used to tell people that when she grew up she wanted to be baa baa black sheep Lol
A scientist! With the lab coat, crazy goggles, and beakers filled with coloured, smoking potions - Harry Potter style.
I wanted to be a nurse, then when I was older a lawyer. I ended up studying psychology at Uni, so quite different from my previous thoughts. And now I work in IT!
A Lawyer. That dream was fulfilled - I only lasted six months in that profession. Then again, my partner is a Lawyer. Did not know I'd be a creative person - an artist.
I always wanted to be a doctor, but it didn't happen. I still think about going back to school and study medicine.
A ballerina. And instead of that wish dying out as I got older, I pursued ballet right to university, studying it full time and getting my degree in it. After health issues I gave it up, but now I write about ballet (and other forms of dance) and feel like I found an even better way to enjoy it. I think childhood me would be happy with how things turned out.
I always wanted to be a doctor.
I always wanted to be a doctor.
I always wanted to be a Kindergarten teacher, but no idea why, as I do not have patience!
However, I did not become one as I met my husband to be who lived in a different State to me and I had to sign a 3 year (I think it was) contract after finishing teachers College, and did not want to be tied down to living where I was, so took a totally different avenue.

So many things, and funnily enough, in one way or another I have kinda done them all. Took me most of my life to finally admit to myself that I have always wanted to be a photographer. Could have 30 more years experience by now, but better late than never.
when I was a child I wanted to be an artist, I later wanted to combine my art talent with helping people through occupational therapy, I ended up teaching art and now do neither, but have found other fantastic ways to tap into my skills and find others I didnt know I had, still am an artist deep down though
I always wanted to be a Chef. I loved cooking with my mom and would sit in the kitchen at a B & B i used to visit.
