When I Grow Up, I Want to Be (30 Funny Kids Answers)


When I was in Grade 3, we had to write down what we wanted to be when we grew up.  I distinctly remember putting down “I want to be a doctor”.  I mean, that was a pretty grown-up ambition.  The funny thing about kids is that they see no limitations to what they could be – an artist, a ninja, a princess or even an airplane; in fact, if they really wanted, they could be all the things at once.


Time flies fast. Now, that we are all grown up, we realize our dreams were quite innocent at the time. You know only 6% of the population actually achieve their childhood dreams. That means that 94% of us either give up on them or pursue different ambitions or choice of work in our career. Though you can’t really change your decisions now right? So just chill out, and laugh the stress off by scrolling through our compiled list of 30 funny kids answers to this same question. Enjoy peeps!
