When I grow up, I want to be a ninja because they seem cool to me. I also want to be a ninja because I like taekwondo. I’ve always wanted to become a ninja since I was 5 or 6 years old. If I become a ninja, I will be like Jackie Chan.

Second place

When I’m older, I want to be a lawyer because I think it would be a fun job to help people. Also, because you get paid a good amount of money. It will take a lot of work and courage because you can’t be a shy person in front of other people. You wouldn’t do your job right and you’d be nervous. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Third place

I would like to be a famous baseball player when I grow up. I would like to smack line drives and home runs. It would feel nice to hit the ball hard. I would like to make awesome plays and make a lot of buckaroos. So, that is what I want to be when I grow up.

When I grow up, I want to be an architect, which is a person who drafts and designs houses. I want to be one because there is a lot of drawing and math, but I’m prepared for that. I think it will be an exciting job, and that is what I want to be when I grow up.

Cato Abraham
When I grow up, I think I want to work at a zoo because I like animals. My favorite animals are the tigers and snow leopards. Even though I like them, I don’t want to get too close to them because I would probably get torn up. But I would like to work with the baby tigers and leopards. I think working at a zoo would be a good job. It would be hard work and fun at the same time! This is the job that I’d like to have.

I want to be a point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. I’m very good at basketball. I’m good at making three pointers and layups. I’m really athletic when it comes to sports, plus I’m very fast. I hope I get in the NBA when I grow up.

Luna Morales
“What do I want to be when I grow up?” is a question I’ve been asking myself for a long time. The answer is always an architect or a construction worker. The reason is because I have always been creative. I have always been the kind of girl who wants to help her dad outside, then play with stuffed animals or build stuff with her guy cousins, then play with dolls.
I’ve been experienced with making things, and I always have fun with it. I always like playing football, basketball or baseball with my dad. It has always been my dream to build things and have fun with my job when I grow up. When I grow up, I want to be an architect or a construction builder. I hope you know what you want to be when you grow up. Thank you for listening.

To be honest, I want to be a lot of things when I grow up, but the one that I want to be the most would have to be a doctor because I like to help people feel better and see the smiles on their faces when I do so. A doctor would be my choice, but I may change my mind a couple of times because I have a long way to go. What do you want to be? You have to be responsible to have a job, so pick the one that fits you the best because if you love what you do, it’s not work.

When I grow up, I want to be a vet. I know it takes a lot of work and schooling, but I can do it.

When I grow up, I want to be a chef. I have an Easy-Bake Oven and I cook desserts all the time. I’ve had it since I was 6 (I’m 11 now) and I love it.

My mom and dad taught me how to make grilled cheese, pancakes, spaghetti and French toast.
Once, when my brother wanted a sandwich, I cooked the toast to perfection, put the meat straight up on the toast and I spelled his name with pretzels. He said he loved it. Now, I always ask anybody if they want me to cook them something.

If I don’t become a surgeon, I would also like to be a cook because it would be great if I learned how to cook.
