I want to be – Blossom Magazine Competition!

There has been an awesome competition launched this week in the Blossom Magazine and it is perfect for those of you with girls around the 5-8 year old mark!

The #IWantToBe campaign is asking young readers to submit a video entry of what they want to be when they grow up.Blossom I Want To Be Edition cover

Growing up I often changed what I wanted to be.  I remember for a long time I wanted to grow up to be a mum, I wanted to look after children and cook food and be the best mum ever.  After this I went through a lot of stages that lots of young girls do – I wanted to be a Vet, a teacher even a police officer.

On a couple of occasions I was told that I couldn’t do things, either I wasn’t clever enough or boy enough (that one may have come when I wanted to be a footballer for a very brief moment).

As I got a bit older I decided that I wanted to be a lawyer and I always said I wouldn’t  be a social worker;  the funny thing is, I now work in family support – very similar to social care (and nothing like a lawyer!).

Blossom I want to be a pilot

I want both my children to know that they can aspire to be anything, regardless of gender!  Mouse currently wants to be a bus driver, she decided when we got on a bus and it was a lady driver. Such a lovely smiley lady and Mouse decided that she wanted to talk to people and drive like her!

I think it is awesome that there is a magazine that encourages girls to aim for what they want to do,  Blossom features a different aspirational career in every edition to show girls they can be whoever they want to be – whether it’s an airline pilot, an author or a doctor.

So what do your little ones want to be? Are you what you aspired to?
