What did you want to be as a kid when you grew up?

And are you doing something completely different now?

I wanted to be a pilot flying something like the Milennium Falcon but ended up being Darth Vader's daughter.  Life sucks sometimes.

When i was very young I wanted to be a Channel swimmer.

When I was older I wanted to be a vet.

I now have nothing to do with animals but work in the health care industry.  I will be swimming the Channel in July

I wanted to be a Dentist, but ended up an Engineer by accident

I've been a technician, a scientist, a technologist (whatever that is) and an engineer.  But basically doing the same job.

The engineer bit makes me laugh.  What do I know about engineering?

I suppose as soon as you tell people you're an Engineer, they assume you fix a washing machine really.

As I child I wanted to be a farmer (despite us not owning any land).

I ended up as a food factory worker, chicken farm worker, and call centre operative and am now a law student.

Aged 8/9 I wanted to be Prime Minister during the week and a pop star at weekends! I ended up neither (academic researcher, which is never something I planned to be)
