What did you want to be when you grew up?

A teacher, a lawyer, a nurse? 

How about working in banking? 

Or as an astronaut or a scientist?

These career choices have become somewhat less popular in the last 25 years...
They've lost out to jobs that are a little more vocational.

Today’s kids are proudly informing teachers, parents and careers advisers across the nation that when they grew up they want to be…

  • A pop star,
  • An actor,
  • A professional footballer…

Today's children want to be rich and famous!
