What Were YOU Planning To Be When YOU Grew Up?

WHEN WE WERE LITTLE, most of us had definite ideas of what we wanted to be when we grew up. A bullfighter. An astronaut. A movie star. The possibilities were endless!

Then, as we grew up, we found other dreams, passions, and ambitions. Some of our childhood ideas remained, and many didn’t.

We Asked Our Team Members…

  • As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why? What changed?

And Here Are Their Answers:


“When I was a kid I really wanted to be a flight attendant. My dad is a pilot and I always wanted to be able to work with him. What changed? I realized how much I would be gone and I’d rather be around my family more.”


“When I was little I wanted to be a model or a movie star. The only reason I wanted to be those things was because I wanted to wear beautiful dresses, I did not want to act AT ALL (I was very shy), I just wanted to be pretty. Such a girly girl. That has obviously changed now that I know all that is required and involved in those careers, but, I will say that I still love pretty things and fancy dresses.”


“When I was a kid I wanted to be a labor and delivery nurse or a lawyer. I still dream about doing labor and delivery nursing or midwifery, but I could never be a lawyer because I am not argumentative at all!”


“I wanted to be a famous worship leader/ singer. I also wanted to be a PE teacher. I also wanted to be a missionary or speaker.”


“ I wanted to be a 3rd grade teacher. I love teaching people and showing them things and the challenge of finding a way that each individual person can understand. I wanted to teach 3rd grade because I thought it was the most fun. It was the start of cool science projects, books started to have plots and of course the awesome timed multiplication tests. I chose not to be a teacher when I realized that I don’t have the patience it would take to be a teacher.”


“So my childhood dream was to be a Meteorologist. I honestly have no idea why. All I remember was thinking that there were no “weather girls” on any of the channels. And I used to watch every weather segment on TV! I would wait up during the 10:00 news, just to watch the weather.”
