Professions I Wanted to Be Growing Up...

As a child, my mum always told me that I was fickle minded & lived in la la land. It may have been true judging from this list 😬
  1. At age 4, I was an activist without even knowing I was one. I protested against colouring anything it's "proper" colour and my question was why not this colour?
  2. At age 9/10, I wanted to be a computer engineer coz I laid eyes on a computer for the first time when I went to my friend's place and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.
    Yes I grew up in the era of floppy disks, VCRs & cassette tapes. Deal with it.
  3. Somewhere between the ages of 13-15, I thought it will be great idea to be a lawyer coz everyone told me I have the gift of the gab, I will be rich & smart and my parents will be proud of me.
    Indian parents (it's changing but back in the day) mostly recognised success through 3 basic professions - doctor, lawyer and engineer.
  4. When full on fashion mania started...for me at 17 when i started buying my own clothes, I fantasised about the following fashion related professions...
  5. Fashion buyer
    influenced by Rachel from FRIENDS
  6. Choreographer for runway fashion shows
    My unhealthy obsession with America's Next Top Model. Thank goodness that phase got over.
  7. Writer for a fashion magazine
  8. Be in business management for a fashion company...
  9. An entrepreneur who uses #bossbabe way too liberally...
  10. Looking back, interestingly enough I think I have dabbled in all that mini-me wanted to do and it has led to more clarity on how my future years are going to look like...
    Except for the runway show choreographer (though I raised funds for a charity fashion show in school) & a computer engineer (thou I do geek out sometimes)
  11. Who says we have to be just one thing...
    I can be a badass fashionista boss babe management consultant blogger extraordinaire! Hell there are actually people that have that job description...
  12. And don't ever let someone say that you can't do anything, not even me - Pursuit of Happyness
