    When I was 9 years old in fourth grade, I hoped to one day become a French Teacher. I never knew that someday I would be able to work as a teacher's assistant for a 7th grade French class for the co-op program offered at my high school.

    I used to want to be an actor on tv, but tbh the work environment disgusted me ever since the 8th grade so I changed to computer science or something computer related.

    Also for a bit I wanted to do graphic design but I just started thinking otherwise for various reasons.

    When I was really young, like 4, I wanted to be an actor. Then I started playing Sims games and I wanted to build houses, architect I suppose. Then I wanted to be a game designer. And now I'm thinking about architect again, even though I'm really not the best at math, but I sure love building houses!

    That's might seems to be totally crazy, when I was a kid, I wanted to be the guy who empty trash bins (don't know English name of this job) because I loved their trucks and I would loved to push the buttons to catch the bins and empty it in the truck lol !
    I know they are different in the US so here is how the trucks looks like in France :

    Now, I'm student in Communication branch, to be Community Manager (the guy who reply on social networks for companies) or any job in communication (there is a lot and they are very similar, so I will choose it depending of local jobs opportunity lol) !

    i wanted to be so many things as a kid, from a dentist, to a veterinarian, an actor, a musician, etc.

    in my teens i got certified in dog grooming because i thought that's what i wanted to do, and halfway through the course i realised that is not what i wanted, but they wouldn't refund the money so i had to finish it and get my certification.

    when i was about 18, i realised i wanted to work with children, so i thought about becoming a pediatrician, but all the years of medical school, having to learn how to administer and prescribe medications, and so forth kinda discouraged me from it.

    now at 21, i still want to work with kids and teenagers. i have my heart set on adolescent psychology and hope to enroll in uni for it when i can actually afford it.

    When I was younger: A veterinarian; which to this day I would not mind doing, but it's not going to happen

    Nowadays: Ended up being a Geoscience major! I want to go on to get my PhD w/ a focus in Astrobiology/Planetary Geology :)

    It took me awhile to find my passion. I started college as a Biotechnology major, love Biology but the more I did I realized I wasn't THAT into it.. then went onto Environmental Science, didn't care for it and wasn't impressed w/ the job outlook. Took a couple classes for fun (Astronomy and Oceanography) and I really enjoyed the geology sections of both classes and also did really well. I've always found astronomy very interesting which is how I came to the particular interest in planetary geology. I'm glad the searching is over because it was frustrating lol

    When I was a kid, there were too many amazing options. Now I'm struggling to find even one that I could put that much commitment into. Here in the UK you can't major in a different subject than you apply for.

    Yes, before when I was a kid I wanted to kind of be a Astronaut, or some other computer job. But now I have a few interests, first one is Being some sort of FBI investigator, I love watching cops and I feel like it would be a cool job and you'd learn potentially how to protect yourself. Also I want to be a doctor. They pay well, and seems kind of interesting to me.

    P.S I also love doing art so maybe some sort of animation stuff idk

    As a kid, I wanted to be an author. I would enjoy writing stories, but it gets tiring afterwards. Now, I want to be in art!

    When I was younger I wanted to be a chef or a police officer, now I am looking to be something in the business field like working for Walmart at their corporate office or work from home. I am currently working for Walmart as a sales associate and they are paying for my education to get a degree in business administration.

    When I was a kid, I kinda bounced between software engineer, mechanical engineer, teacher, and mathematician.

    Nowadays, I'm planning to go to university for Computer Science and probably get a Master's in it. :blush:
