"What do I want to be when I grow up?" I've asked this question to myself several times and still cannot get an answer of what I want to be. Chef, author, artist, graphic designer, actor, singer, comedian . . . the many choices float around in my head. It's tricky to pick the career I will enjoy most and be the most dedicated to. I decided to interview Whyvillians about what they want to be when they grow up to see if they knew!

XxFUZZxXx: Hey guys! Have you thought about what you want to be when you grow up? A career/job?

ThinMin12: I have hoped to either be a detective or a teacher.
Anzella: A chef.
nicenfun: Well, right now I am in college to be a certified pharmacy technician. Once I complete that, I'm going to be getting my PharmD to become a licensed pharmacist!

XxFUZZxXx: Why do you want this career?

ThinMin12: I have watched so many shows about detectives and see they could be a big help to people in the community. A teacher because I belong at school. I tutored fourth graders when they had failing grades and now they are passing the subject.
Anzella: I would like to be a chef on the Food Network. Although, I do not think this will happen, we'll hope for the best!
nicenfun: I want this career because I love science and helping people, but I absolutely can't stand blood! Pharmacy will give me the science and interaction with people minus the icky stuff.

XxFUZZxXx: What school subjects can help you to gain some knowledge for this job?

ThinMin12: I think mystery (if that is a subject). I also hope to be an English teacher, so maybe English.
Anzella: I think that Home Ec classes will help me because they teach you all about housework and cooking is considered a household job. I also think that English is a major part in cooking, because you need to be able to read the instructions.
nicenfun: Chemistry is definitely a needed school subject for pharmacology, along with Calculus, Anatomy and Physiology. That's all pharmacology is about basically!

XxFUZZxXx: What's the best part about your dream job?

ThinMin12: The best part about a detective is solving crimes and prevent others that could have injured or harmed a person. The best about a teacher is because I can see kids learn and grow from English.
Anzella: I think that the best part about this job is getting to do the tings that I love - cooking, reading, and exceeding expectations.
nicenfun: The best part of the job would be the interaction with people and getting to know them personally while working. The salary is just an added bonus.

XxFUZZxXx: How long have you had this job in mind?

ThinMin12: For a few years now.
Anzella: I have been wanting to be a chef ever since I cracked my first egg at the age of three. I've loved cooking ever since.
nicenfun: I've been interested in pharmacology for a few years now. It was between pharmacology and speech pathology, but pharmacology appealed to me more.

XxFUZZxXx: Could you give us a fact or two about the career/job you have picked?

ThinMin12: A detective can help solve murders or grand larceny. A teacher will teach about grammar and lessons that will help you read and proofread your kids homework.
Anzella: You do not have to go to school to be a chef, however you do have to go to culinary school. This school takes 2-4 years
nicenfun: Hmm . . . a few facts. Pharmacists are actually in high demand right now, and there are many job opportunities are available. You can also work in a lot of different settings like a drug store, hospital, or a nursing home.

Do you have any idea what you want to be yet? There are many jobs and careers out there, and by doing well on your school work you can be qualified for just about anything.

Have a Merry Christmas Whyville!


Author's Note: I'd just like to give a big thank you to kittieme for editing the interview.
