My youngest grandson is 16 and in a vo tech school studying the culinary arts. He will be going into his 3rd year in September and hopefully in a couple of years he will be a master chef. How great it will be to have our own chef in the family. I do have some fears that he will end up with a job in a far away place. He wants to go to Austria to learn to be a pastry chef. Nice big dreams for a young man. Did you know what you wanted to become when you were 16?

Nope, I still don't know.. lol That is great I know a lot more people getting into cooking... and most of them are male... when I was in school. They often tried to make fun of the guys that took Home Economics. of course some of the courses were required... What is the harm in knowing how to cook for yourself? Kudos to your Grandson!
When I was 16 I was very confused of what I want in life. In fact, I didn't know what would I be doing at all. But when I was in pre-school I wanted to be a teacher. My father wanted me to be a lawyer, my mom wanted me to be a flight attendant. Now I have two degrees, a degree in Business Administration major in Marketing and a degree in Law as I've graduated in law school as well. I also studied real estate and took an exam for licensure and now I'm also a licensed Real Estate Broker.
When I was 16 years old, I wanted to become a nurse. I want the idea of taking good care of patients who needed assistance. Then I made up my mind and want to be a Teacher. I want to teach kids. And when I was 18, I wanted to become a Policewoman and defend people especially women and children. But it didn't work out for me. I became a Call center agent. Talking to people around the globe is the best thing I ever experience.

@LadyDuck Yes it does. I wanted to be a hairdresser since I was about 9 years old. I did it for over 20 years. I would still enjoy doing it if my fingers were ok but I dislocated 2 many years ago and never had them set so they are still bent.

Let us know when he gets his own cooking show. When I was 16, I wanted to attend a college or a university, because I knew that 16 year olds couldn't get jobs that paid much. Why work at McDonald's or Burger King, when I could be working towards a degree??
