Ask any kid, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and the kid almost always has a quick answer. This is not something they need to think about, they just know… with certainty. I still remember what my answer was. I wanted to make pizza and sell it out of a truck. So, like an ice cream truck, but for pizza. I also thought I could make a fortune selling chocolate chip cookies using my Grandmother’s recipe — she makes really good cookies! Somehow as I grew up, I forgot about my aspirations. One thing lead to another, and I studied art all the way through college, and now I work as an artist — a dream job for many kids, I bet. Maria says she wanted to be a candy salesperson. So, what did you want to be, and what did you end up becoming?
