What do you want to be when you grow up?

We’ve all been asked this question before: “What do you want to be when you grow up”? In fact, we are asked it almost from the moment we can speak. Me? I want to be a broadcaster. But that hasn’t always been my dream.

From a young age I wanted to be an actress. I loved being involved in musicals and I thought I would be quite content under the stage lights for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, reality came in the form of a dream-crushing careers advisor who didn’t look too favourably upon my 15-year-old teenage plans.
