What did you want to be when you grew up?

What did you want to be when you grew up? Is that still what you want? And what are you doing now?

When I was a kid I wanted to become a marine biologist, now I want to become a professional photographer and work for National Geographic. Sadly though that's not what I'm doing right now, right now I'm enlisted and using my off time to build a portfolio and become a better photographer

    • That's awesome!!! I finally sold my first print about a month or so ago!! I can't do portraitures to save my life though =/. The only thing I ever have had an eye for was landscapes, I'm trying to learn how to take portraits though, my angles are all off though, definitely something I need more practice with

  • I wanted to be like Willy Wonka and own my own crazy candy factory. Now I just want to own my own bakery/sweets shop, and I know it's not that much of a change when it comes to what I want to do, but I really like sweets. Unfortunately I'm doing neither right now.

  • I wanted to be a scientist and invent cures for diseases and help humanity. Ah so much wasted potential :D A little later I also wanted to be a marine biologist, now I'm studying political science... Plan to start my own business soon. I wish I could contribute somehow to make the world a better place though.

    • That's still pretty awesome though! (: What kind of business would you start?

  • When I was really young I wanted to work at Wendy's lol 😂 now I want to be either a bestselling author or I kinda think I'd be a good stand up comedian. I don't know I like to make people laugh 😂 I suppose I could be both 🙇🏻 and then if those careers fail which knowing my luck they will I'll be a music teacher bc why not?

  • I wanted to be a teacher when I was a kid. Guess as I grew up things changed and I realized teaching really doesn't suit me (I've worked as a kindergarten teacher's assistant) and my personality. So to answer your second question, no that's not what I want to be now, nor will I want it in the future. I'm still a student currently but working hard to achieve my goals and my ambition.

  • A master classical oil painter and a soldier, two things I still plan on becoming someday, the painter thing more so because I am an apprentice under my father a master oil painter. But I am also writing poetry and gathering enough for a book in my spare time and becoming a professional trainer, in addition to bettering myself through martial discipline via martial arts kenjutsu, zen meditation and bodybuilding.

  • Filmmaker. Still what I want to be. I make short movies on the weekend. During the week I direct a morning newscast and review movies on the morning news, so it's at least somewhat related
