Brooke Smith

I don't know if this counts, but I distinctly remember riding in my parent's van coming back from a trip to Florida when my 5 year old younger brother informed us of his wish to be a giraffe when he grew up.

Interestingly enough he's 6'4" at age 24...



Artist. Mom. Teacher. Mermaid. Veterinarian. Mechanic. Princess. Chef.


I always wanted to be a mommy when I was growing up!

Melissa Rapp

National Geographic Photographer


When I was younger I always had a great passion for trains, I would always tell my parents that I wanted to drive one all by myself and travel the world!

I also shared this on Facebook. :) I do not have twitter though! sorry!


When I was little I wanted to be a vet or a singer...until I realized I would have to see the insides of animals too, and I get awful stagefright.

Sherree Stone

An actress. It's all I've ever wanted to be, since I can remember.


I wanted to be a teacher when I was little. I became a teacher but eventually decide a different career path...but once a teacher, always a teacher (in different ways).

I wanted to be an actress/singer. In reality, I got my wish... Everyday I sing and play with my kids and they make me feel like a star!

Melissa B

I have always wanted to be a poet, there was a moment when I thought I would like to be a doctor but I quickly realized I can't handle icky stuff/bad news or do math/science. I ended up going to college and getting a degree in poetry so I feel like I lived up to my childhood fancies to a certain extent.

Pat K

I wanted to be a fashion illustrator. Now I would love to be a decorator stylist at Crate & Barrel!

Rachel M

A ballerina veterinarian soccer player :)


I wanted to be a teacher like my mom, or a lawyer because my sister had this Barbie who came with a pink business suit and pink briefcase!

Donna Voss

When I was a little girl I would look up at the sky when the sun would shine down through the clouds in column like streaks and say that those were paths for the Angels. I wanted to be an Angel when I grew up so I could help people that had no other way to help themselves.


I wanted to be Indiana Jones before there ever was an Indian Jones! Exploring and adventuring and solving mysterious ancient puzzles...and even wearing a supercool hat! :)

Lisa Crawford

There is a story that my family tells over and over and over again about when they would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up I told them that I wanted to make people happy. they would push me for a more defined answer but All I wanted was to make people happy. As I grew older and needed to make a decision (because putting "making people happy" on a college application wasn't acceptable) I thought that nursing was the way to go. I did that for a few years and was ready for a change. I am now part owner of a staffing company where we help individuals get jobs to support their families and all in all make them happier people. SO i guess i have accomplished my goal of making people happy when I grow up!

Becky Meyers

I wanted to be a school bus driver. I wanted to be able to drive a big car with a large steering wheel and open the school bus door with the cool handle that swung around. You also could talk on a walkie talkie to other buses.


My dream was to be a mythologist, something that is in high demand these days. I spent five years studying Latin and one year studying Greek, but I don't think I could speak any of it anymore. Oh course, the number of people who hold daily conversations in Latin are dwindling. I ended up getting my degrees in the history of art with a minor in religions, and spent my days as a writer.

Amanda Tucker

I wanted to drive an ice cream truck and make ice cream all day!
Funny thing is that my first job was working in an ice cream shop! If only I could do it full time for the rest of my life!;)


I always remember wanting to have a happy healthy family. Like the whole white picket fence deal. Happy loving husband and children, etc. Hopefully someday I'll have that :)

Jennifer Cashin

I always wanted to be an artist or "just" a Mom....and I am both :)
