When I grow up, I want to be a Criminal Investigator with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts at Saint Mary's University, with a double major in Criminology and Sociology, with a Minor in History! (I am in first year).

Right Now: I am currently a Student, studing a BA double Major in Crim & Soc, with a Minor in History
in 5 Years: I want to be completed University, and approaching completion of my RCMP Depot training
In 10 Years: I would like to be working as a police officer in the traffic department, putting in my time towards working in the Major Crime unit, as a detective.

One of the major things I have refused to let go of in life, that many of my friends have, is that I refuse to stop having fun while in university. I organize little events such as scuba diving, motorcycle race clubs, and were planning on sky diving this summer. Yes, university is hard, and full of study, but if you stop living for 4 years, then thats when you start to hate your life, and regret being there in the first place. To be successful, I want to always love what I'm doing, and i think im pretty successful on that level.

In five years I will have recently graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Arts in Rhetoric and Professional Writing – one of the Honours English degrees offered by Waterloo – with a specialization in Digital Media Studies. Having graduated by that time, I will also be looking to enroll in Waterloo’s Experimental Digital Media M.A. program.

In ten years I will be a writer for a major computing, electronics, communications, or gaming company. Examples of such companies that I am interested in working for include Microsoft, RIM, Google, EA, Rockstar, etc. By that time I will also have pursued other avenues of writing such as manuscript editing, and even fiction writing in my spare time.

Right Now: I am in my second year of University at York (went to Nipissing first) studying towards an Honours major in Sociology. I'm living in an apartment in North York, Ontario and not too comfortable with it, but I'm willing to endure it due to its cost effectiveness and the proximity to my school. I never thought I would be studying sociology, but I found its what I enjoyed most in my first year of University. I know it has helped me develop my academic career as well as self-discipline and the power to keep pushing forwards.
In 5 Years: I will have completed my undergrad as well as a Master degree in Social work and just starting a new job with great benefits and a great salary or I will have figured out a way to be able to attend law school regardless of their tuition prices. I will hopefully getting married as well and starting a family soon after...and be long gone from my apartment.
In 10 years: I will have established myself as a successful independent career woman and will have helped changed the lives of many families
My ultimate goal is to be happy with my work, and not regret waking up everyday wishing I had chosen another path. I want to be a cultured, professional, well-roudned individual. I will be balancing my family and work, although I'm sure I'll feel like my work has my family as well. I don't need to be living in a mansion or on the cover of magazines, because as long as I know that I will never stop learning and I keep accomplishing great things, then I will have succeeded in life to my full potential.

Right now I am at the University of Waterloo studying Honours Fine Arts in my third year. I didn't expect myself to end up here at all. I applied for business originally, but it just wasn't for me. I'm glad I chose the fine arts major though, since I've now decided that I want to be in design. I plan on applying for conestoga college after I finish up my degree here. 

In five years, I will hopefully be working in a design related job. This could be in marketing, advertising, web design, or just general design. I am a creative person and I hope in 5 years I have found a job where I can use it.

In ten years, I will be working at my parents company. It's a family company, and my brother and I will likely end up there in the next 10 years. I hope to keep it running. I've worked there in the past doing random jobs and I really enjoyed it.

Right now I am: in High School

In five years, I will be: finishing Bachelor of Science for Chemistry (in University of Calgary). Perhaps I would change my degree to Chemical Engineering, since right now I lack Physics 30 to enter Schulich's School for Engineering. Both programs are interesting either way.

In ten years, I will be: in an chemistry occupation related to the environment. I intend be part of a group of people who wants to do something about the tailing ponds produced by the oil sands production in Alberta and work my way from there. This way, I think I can help make a huge impact on something that will create a rippling effect to all other aspects in society (or at least most).

Right now I am finishing my last year in High School.
In five years, I will be finding my place in the film industry. I will broaden my skill-set and discover what role in the industry suits me best. 
In ten years, I will be doing what I want, whatever that may be. But what I want to do is to influence and aid others. Even if I am unsuccessful in my career, I will do my best to brighten the lives of others.
