I have dreams. Big dreams. Growing up, I went through so many fazes of what I wanted to be and what I wanted to do. Basically, up until 6th grade, I wanted to be whatever my sister wanted to be. Here are some examples:
And then middle school came and I wanted to do my own thing:
Professional soccer player
Nutritionist There are actually a few routes I would like to take with this. I would like to help those trying to lose weight. I could help them get on a meal plan and exercise routine that would make them feel good about themselves without feeling like they’re actually on a diet. Then on the other side, I would also like to help those in recovery from an eating disorder. Such as maybe working in a clinic to help make a meal plan for the patients.
I know. I know. These are total opposites but I have a passion for both. Or, I could just have my own business that has consulting with people who want to be healthier in general. But either way, I want to help people become happy and healthy.
Then I have bigger dreams. Far off dreams that I would love to happen one day. One of those dreams is to open my own restaurant. A healthy restaurant, of course. Where there is also a bakery attached to it. Or I would love owning just a bakery. I love baking bread so making it for a living would be amazing.
I would also want to one day present a bill to Congress. It would be about the food industry or nutrition and food labels. But whatever it’s about, I would just one day love to stand in front of Congress and tell them about something that I am passionate about.
I’m only a freshman in college but I know that this is the direction that I want to take. Right now, I am majoring in Kinesiology and minoring in Psychology. After the four (or so) years here, I would like to move onto the nutrition program at the University of Washington.
Over this past year, I have grown so much emotionally. Because of that, I have found my passion and I cannot wait to help people. It makes my day whenever I get comments or emails from readers, telling me how much I have helped them. Whether it has to do with eating disorders, depression, food, or fitness, my day is made when those comments come my way. It just reinforces what I want to do with my life.

Books. Gotta love them. Let’s see…I have a computer science, biology, some english, and a philosophy book. Try to contain your excitement.
Question: What do (did) you want to be when you grow up?
