When children are asked what they want to be when they grow up, it can range from an astronaut to a fairy princess. They change their minds continuously because, well, they are children, and they are full of imagination. Whatever is awesome or cool for them that day, is what they want to be. I, on the other hand, wasn’t that kind of kid. I wasn’t normal like that. I didn’t change my mind often. In fact, I never changed my mind about what I wanted to be when I grew up at all.
When I was seven years old, I was introduced to Harry Potter. My mom had bought me the book so I could read it before the movie came out. That was her rule–if a movie you want to see is adapted from a book, you need to read it first before seeing the movie. I immediately fell in love with the books. J.K Rowling’s writing is what inspired me to choose my career at such a young age, and continue with it. I, Isabel, want to be an author. I have been writing stories since elementary school, although the ones I’ve written recently are a whole lot better.
I am working on a new story right now, and maybe, at some point, will begin posting chapters. That might not happen for a while, though.
Writing is my passion, and I plan on doing it for the rest of my life. I just declared a double major in English and Elementary Education, so my plans as of now is to become a teacher, and write on the side. That gives me a more secure financial foundation, while still doing something I enjoy.
Is there anything that inspired you to choose what you want to do when you grow up (or what you are doing now)? You can answer down below in the comments. Adieu!
