When I was a kid, I wanted to become a doctor. Another dream job of mine was to have my own bookstore. But luck had other plans. I ended up in the corporate world working for print media. What did you want to become when you were a kid?

I wanted to become an astronomer when I was a kid. Now I'm studying psychology.

Human behaviour is more complex than studying the stars :)

That's the same path I took. I started college as a physics major and graduated with a psychology degree.

I wanted to be a teacher which was not too far off. I was a teachers aide for a while.

In fact, I also worked as a teacher for four years before shifting to corporate sector.

I wanted to be a harpist when I was younger. We couldn't afford music school though, so I just studied management.
