What do you want to be when you grow up?

Many young people are at a stage in life were they want to do something - but are not quite sure where to start. The 'what do you want to be when you grow up'  series aims to highlight stories of young people in the West sharing how they got to where they are currently at. How did they navigate feelings of uncertainty? How did they know what they REALLY want to do? This series will highlight some amazing stories from around our community - and hopefully show that life isn’t really as linear as it seems…
