A long time ago you were asked the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Can you remember your answer? Take your time, think about it.
In all likelihood, you probably thought about becoming a doctor, superhero or air-hostess. By the time you reached high school, superhero became rock-star and by the time you got to college things got more realistic and the pressure set in.
