Prompt questions: What did you want to do when you were a kid? What does that say about who you are now? Is there a part of that still wants to?

When I was a kid, I wanted to be an interior decorator. I liked art, I liked playing with colours and I loved decorating.

As I grew older, I became really interested in psychology and then science and genetics and decided to follow that path. I resisted teaching for a long time because it was what my mom did.

What do I think wanting to be an interior decorator says about me? I think it says that I am creative. Today, I channel that creativity into crafting and gardening.

Does any part of me still want to do it? No. I think I’ve found my calling teaching.
