When I’m older, I want to be a ...

Saltus Primary 6 (Photograph by Blaire Simmons)


My goals for the future are one day to become a director, who will direct all the greatest movies!

I will make sure to put my best effort into directing the movies to ensure that the producer is happy with my work.

I plan to direct about 26 movies in my lifetime. My movies will win Oscars and Grammys!

I will be invited to speak on lots of talk shows, in fact, I will have my own talk show if I have time!

I will try to get into a good university and work as a waitress or at the bank to pay for my food as I go along.


My name is Ben. My goal in life is to become an eye doctor but first I would like to become an accountant for my mom by the age of 16 to help her deal with her taxes.

I would like to be a programmer while I’m not working.

By the age of 22, I will start to train to become an eye doctor and when I finish medical school I will run my own optical company and hopefully retire at 50.

That is my goal in life and then become an old man while relaxing for the rest of my life.


When I’m older I would like to be an actor, the reason I want to be an actor is because I really like drama and acting.

I started when I was in The Wizard of Oz (not the 1939 version). It was at City Hall. My goals are to be the best actor and to star in films.


I want to be a magician when I grow up. My favourite magician is Shin Lim from America’s Got Talent. He can make cards disappear in seconds. He also won AGT the champions and AGT 2018. That’s what I want to be when I grow up.


In the future, I want to be an architect. Designing houses and different buildings is my passion. I am always looking at different objects to get ideas for the future.

I want to train at McGill or MIT. I have already drawn some designs at my school.

How I picture myself in the future is a boss of a new company in Boston and I will some day be the owner of six architectural firms all over the United States of America.

Some day, I want to have a family of five and train for an Ironman because I like biking, swimming and running.


When I grow up, I want to be a tennis player. If not, I want to be a slalom skier.

I like these sports because they’re a lot of fun and you can do it with your whole family.

I want to compete on centre court in the Wimbledon finals or be standing on the podium at the World Cup of Skiing.

I really want to compete in the Winter or Summer Olympics. I am going to keep doing both sports for now in case something goes wrong and I can’t play one of them.


My goal for the future is to become a lawyer and prosecutor. I imagine myself going to law school for four years. I want to send people who do bad things to jail. I plan to be a lawyer a year or two after I come back from law school.

I want to be a lawyer in Canada. I’m going to be a lawyer when I’m 26 years old. I’m going to go to law school for four years or maybe even longer — as long as it takes to get the best degree possible.

After I do all of that, I plan to retire at the age of 50.


I have decided to become an actress because I loving acting. When I watch television, I imagine myself on the screen.

I would start my career at age 22. Shooting all my movies in Los Angeles, I would own a place out there. After auditioning for millions of movies, I will hopefully be famous.

If that career doesn’t work out, I will become a vet. Knowing as much about animals as I do would definitely help. I am thinking about being a small animal vet. Although, I also want to work with horses.


When I grow up I want to be a Second World War historian and war veteran. I want to do this because the Second World War has always been fascinating for me and when I pass away, I want to be remembered as a hero.

I’m currently in the Sea Cadet Corps (SCC) and I’m working towards being the best cadet there.

But I plan to leave Bermuda to go to America to enrol in a US Marines camp in Dallas, Texas. How I will do it is by training, getting fitter and eating healthier.


Hello, my name is Sadie. When I am older, I would like to be an editor in chief. I would like to live in New York in a big building and be the boss.

I will maybe call it Capital Dev; it will be a magazine and newspaper company. If that doesn’t work, I want to be a lawyer. Because, first, there is not much maths, and it looks fun.


I want to be so many things ... I want to be an architect or a paleontologist. I want to build the biggest building or find undiscovered fossils. I want to be the best.

I hope it happens when I get a job. I’m going to train to be the greatest!

I want to be a DJ or a dancer. Trying to make the best dubstep music, or dancing to my favourite songs.

I want to be a marine biologist. I want to discover new species of ocean life. I want to be a scientist, discovering new ways to help people in need.

I want to be an animal trainer, I could train dolphins or other zoo animals.


I want to do anything creative! Also, some weight goals are to lose weight (100 pounds at 15 maybe).

Some creative jobs I want are artist, vet, potter/sculptor and (video) game maker/designer.

Why? because I love art, animals, clay and coding. I’ve started drawing (already) and making small games. I’m most likely to become a vet full time after college and uni.

I am thinking of going to a university in Canada because people are nice there.


When I’m older, I want to be a vet. My special goals in this process are making sure every animal is healthy and safe, and to help the animal know to do the right things so then they don’t hurt themselves.

I’m thinking of going to work in Sweden, where my sister, Lily, wants to live.

I want to go to college so then I will know more about saving animals. Going to college might seem like a bore, but I think I will learn a lot of things I didn’t know!

When I’m in Sweden, I’m going to run my own veterinary practice.


When I grow up I would like to be a professional footballer for Scotland and Hamilton Academical.

I want to be a footballer because I want to have a good job and spend a bit more time with my family. I also want to be well paid, so I can put food on the table and give my family a nice house to live in.

I want to start my football career early (20-30) because that’s when they normally play football. If sport doesn’t work for me, I would be an accountant or a lawyer.


When I’m older, I want to be a lawyer because I want to stop people from going to jail because jail is a horrible place.

I want to earn a degree in law. Then I will be a journalist until I’m 35; then I will be a lawyer until I’m 50. Then I’ll retire and travel the world.


When I grow up, I want to be a construction worker. The reason why is because my father is a construction worker and he inspires me. It’s also fun for me.

My dad works at the airport and I think it would be very nice if there was a take-your-child-to-work day.

I love working with machines. Whenever my dad goes to work at a house, I usually go, and I love it.

My favourite type of construction is excavating and demolition. It’s such fun! So that’s why I want to be a construction worker.


I want to be an actuary because it seems fun and you do get a pretty big cheque if you do your work.

My parents told me that an actuary makes more money than an accountant, so I chose to be an actuary instead of an accountant.

I want to be an actuary at around 24 because it seems like a good age to start working. I want to work in Bermuda, but first I will have to go to college in America. I want to study at MIT and then move back to Bermuda to work.


When I am older, I would like to be a basketball player, because my dad played in high school and college; so, I would like to carry on the genes.

I think I have a chance if I practise a lot every day. Right now, I am pretty good. I play every day for at least an hour; I play four days at the gym a week and the rest in my back yard.

On Friday nights I have a game. If I don’t become a basketball player, I would like to be a professional skier in the Olympics.


When I grow up, I would like to be a mechanical engineer or a machine designer.

I would like to be a mechanical engineer so I can build and fix motorised vehicles.

For instance, I could build a safer motorbike for Bermuda to help prevent accidents.

My reason for being a machine designer is so I can design special machines like rockets and moon buggies for Nasa.


My goals for the future are to be a professional ski racer in the Olympics, a famous singer or a brilliant actress.

Why would I like to be these things when I grow up? I would like to be these things when I grow up because ski racing, singing and acting are some of my passions and my goals for the future.

Where? I would like to perform in the greatest musical on Broadway, be the star of an awesome movie and come first in the hardest race in the Olympics. Those are some of my goals for the future.


My main goal is to become a professional cook. I want to be a professional cook because I really like to cook, and I want to make it a career.

I know that to accomplish this goal I’m going to have to get a good education and cook more. I also want to work at a place that pays me well.

To get more education, I might go to university. If that doesn’t work, I think I might be a game creator/tester. I hope that in my future I can at least be one of those things.


My name is Michael. I don’t know what I want to be when I’m older. I guess I want to have a nice well-paying job that I enjoy and is easy to get to (though I do not know what that will be).


When I grow up, I would like to be two things — either a historian or an actress. Why would I like to be a historian? Well, history is one of my favourite subjects. I always enjoy learning about what our ancestors did in the past.

Right now, in history, we are learning about Jamestown and the settlers. But I love learning about kings and queens — anything to do with royalty pretty much.

Why would I like to become an actress? Drama is my favourite subject. I feel it is when I get to express myself. I love playing mean characters or sassy ones and making the audience laugh. It gives me a warm feeling inside. Those are my goals.


When I grow up I want be a world-class soccer player but first play on the national girls’ team for Bermuda. I will practise every day so that I can be the best that I can be. I could be famous! I can already hear voices in my head calling me. When I hear that whistle, the battle is on.

After my soccer career, I want to be a vet. I love animals; helping them is my passion. I think I will be good with animals. I feel passionate about animals. I would love to work with them. They are such cool creatures of life and that’s why I love them.
