Saturday 9: Inside Job

1. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A chef, then a medical researcher

2. Did you ever pursue that career?
In high school I wanted to be a chef so I took Commercial Cookery. Later on I wanted to be a Medical Researcher so I went back to school to do Human Biology etc but neither panned out.

3. If you are not in that field, what changed?
I got pregnant at 17 and became a single parent. Plus I wasn't very good at Calculus.

4. What is your current job?

5. What's the best part of what you do?
I have no boss!

6. Do you have plans to do something else down the road?
I would love to get into professional photography.

7. How did you get your present job? If you are a stay at home mom, how long did you need to plan that move?
I had no choice really. We moved to the USA from Australia and at first I didn't have the right to work, now I need my licence and a car which isn't that easy to get.

8. Did your parents influence your choices of jobs over the years?
not at all

9. What advice would you give your children on careers?
To follow their dreams!
