Campus Life

Humber and GH students’ dream jobs as a child vs. now

by Kayzia Boilard

Princess. Firefighter. Olympian.

As kids, we all had ideas of what we wanted to be when we grew up. For some of us, it was a doctor and for others it may have been something along the lines of a superhero. Once you actually do grow up, chances are that your plans changed – or maybe for a few of us they haven’t. We asked Humber and Guelph-Humber students what they wanted to be as kids and what they hope to do now.
