When you’re younger, people always ask you want you want to be when you grow up. If you’re a girl, your answer will most likely be “a princess”, and if you’re a boy, yours will be “a superhero”. However, as you get older and give it some thought, you have some pretty amazing ideas as to what you’d want to be more than anything. There are so many different answers out there, so I decided to ask 70 students what their dream job is.

I got so many different answers, but the most popular were a doctor, a professional athlete, a teacher, and a fashion designer. To be honest, I didn’t expect teacher to be popular because everyone complains about coming to school, yet they want to spend the rest of their lives at school. Some other jobs were a fireman, a nurse, a lawyer, a marine biologist, an actor, and an FBI agent. There were so many other jobs, it would take three stories just to list them all.

The job that most surprised me to hear was to be a host for the Travel Network. I was mostly surprised because that’s not a job that most people think about, and it would take a lot to do this job. You’d travel all the time, and write reviews on entire countries. Still, I think that having this job would be awesome

If you didn’t get to take the survey, please let us know what your dream job is by leaving a comment below. If you’re up to it, we’d also like to hear any suggestions or constructive criticism.
