When I was three I wanted to be camping barbie. When I was 6 I wanted to dance in cages.

I work in HR now. Totally not as exciting.

I wanted to be an OB when I was really young (kind of random), then I wanted to be a lawyer.  And now I’m an engineer.

Then:  Actress/Singer

Now:  Teacher

Like many 5 year olds, I had a very loose grasp on reality.

I wanted to be a vet when I was little.

I still love animals, but I’ve expanded my love to kids as well. Going into teaching 🙂

I wanted to be superwoman (same outfit as superman) and take all the food first world kids didn’t want to eat (broccoli, etc.), and fly it over the staving children in Africa and drop it in their bowls from the sky. The kids would be thrilled, of course.

This was a very vivid and clear fantasy in my head, so I still remember it well, to this day.

Now…I research, analyze, and summarize information in exchange for money.

In the future, I will… ???

When I was little I wanted to grow up to be a 1-Geneticist, 2-Race Car Driver, 3-Lawyer

I’m now the Operations Director for a property management company (but I do a little/lot of everything, i.e., advertising, HR, bookkeeping, etc). I’m hoping to change careers in the next 1-2 years so we’ll see what happens…

I wanted to be a marine biologist. I actually did end up getting 2 degrees in Marine Biology and traveled the world doing field research. Now, I work in human biology – I help develop cures for diseases. Not quite the same, but getting to have more than one career is the best of both worlds!
