Are you what you want to become when you were a child?

As a child, first I wanted to be a teacher.. I taught my cousins, nieces, nephews and neighbors the same way as how my teacher did it at school... In the middle of my primary days and years, on my 3rd grade, then I wanted to become a doctor but I am a nervous person and maybe during operations or emergency situations I will be the one to faint than my patien.. I never became a teacher, neither a doctor, but I become an engineer, I love mathematics though... how about you? did you ever become as what you wanted to be as a little child? :-)

Hi shigeraldz. There were plenty of things I wanted to be when I was growing up. I wanted to be a ballerina, a model, an actress, a veterinarian, and so on. Like you, I even wanted to a teacher at one time or another. But I wound up being a mom instead. I did get to work in a veterinary office for a short time before I became pregnant with my eldest though. So, even though I didn't actually get to be a vet, I was still able to take care of the animals. However when it comes to all the other things it was never meant to be. LOL Happy mylotting!

As far as I am concerned, I think I am not what I want to become when I was still a young boy. Though I am trying my best to realize my dream now, it still exasts a lot difficulties in front of myself. But I will never give up, keep to stick to my dream. I think with my effort in my hands, I think I will succeed in the end.I can become what I want to become when I was still young. Have a nice day my friend.

Hi shigeraldz, No, I didn't become what I wanted to be when I was a child. I wanted to be a lot of things! I dreamed of becoming a teacher, a manager or an accountant. Sadly, I haven't become one of those. But it's okay, I'm learning to love what I do now, and it's not too late to fulfill my dreams.

yes it is not still too late to fulfill those dreams..at least in our everyday lives, we still do any of them.. we may not notice some of them but we actually do them everyday...

No, when I was young, i dreamed of being a model or a flight stewardess. But then, I failed and now, i am just an ordinary office staff in an office with a very cheap salary. I guess those dream would be very impossible to come true this day because I will be a mom and being a mom is a very hard job among all. I will just focus on how to earn more and how can I give my baby a good future.

i did not imagine myself to be an engineer when i was a child. i used to dream of being a rich business woman and i still do until now. problem is i don't have any capital to begin with. i'm a student currently taking up an engineering course but entering this field is just a stepping stone into fulfilling the bigger image i've drawn for myself. i can't really tell if i would become what i've always dreamed of since i'm still in the process of making it happen but i sure would do my best in reaching my goals. i have so many dreams and life is short so i always believe in making the most out of my time. :)

It is expected that as we grow our preferences change. In my case, I am a nurse by profession but it never occurred to me ever that I would be. Well it figures since I was only encouraged to go to nursing school. It was not my decision. I dreamed of being a photojournalist, then a vet, then a psychologist, sometime before I wanted to be in the army! But all of that didn't happen.

When I was little I wanted to be an animal vet, and then an architect. I am neither. Right now I'm a college student getting my business degree, and getting ready to go for round two and get my IT degree. At this point I'm still not sure what I'll be when I grow up LOL

When I was a child I wanted to become a teacher. I loved reading and writing, and I wanted to teach Danish or literature. Later I changed my mind and decided that I would like to become a librarian. I read a lot, and it sounded like the perfect job. I kept that dream for a long time, but eventually I decided that I would prefer to become a journalist, because I really enjoyed writing, so I thought it would be interesting to work as a journalist. Today I am not a teacher, a librarian or a journalist, but I still love to write and read and I write poems and short stories.

No, not really. When I was little I had so many ideas of what I wanted to be; not legitimate ideas. More like "singer", "olympic swimmer", and so on. As it turns out I am horrible at both singing and swimming. So I would say a no on this.
