Seeing as how we are constantly evolving as human beings, the ideas we possess often change as well. I know for me, what I wanted to grow up to be when I was a child had changed so many times I had lost count. Of all the things that I had once desired for myself to become, I can recall that being an “animal doctor” was the very first thing that my young heart desired. I longed to be able to take care of cute puppies and fluffy things all day long. That was until I discovered that the real name for that position was veterinarian and I could not properly pronounce that in kindergarten. Among that, there was also the desire to become a teacher, an author, a marine biologist (which I only wanted to be because it sounded very professional but I quickly got over that when I realized I’d most likely have to go in the ocean), and others I can’t even recall to this day. Of those things though, I am very glad I am now none of them. I wouldn’t trade the job I have now at Advocacy Unlimited for any of those, because I understand that I am truly making an impact on other people’s lives. What kinds of crazy things did you want to grow up to be when you were a child?
