Let me tell about myself...
When I was 4-5 years old I wanted to be a princess. In a long big pink/gold dress and certainly with a little gold crown on a head!
And my fiancé would be surely… Chingachguk-Big Serpent (from books Fenimor Cooper about north-American Indians)!
Then I have been watched film about cosmos… soon after that I read first sci-fi book about cosmos adventure… And I decide to be a cosmonaut! Definitely!
When I was 10 years old I watched film “D’Artanyan and three musketeer”. And soon after that I read such Alexander Duma book! Of course, I must be a musketeer! (By the way, my daughter repeated this my choice when she was 9-10 years old! Although she hadn't information about her mother's choice!):)
Some times later I got rid of these child’s things and wanted to be just a teacher in primary school (perhaps, because for my mother is a teacher in music school ). And chemist in the submarine ( from one else book: "The mystery of two oceans" - about science-research adventures in deeps oceans )!
And so on, and so on, and so on…
And when I was 14, our class went to excursion in the Computer Center at the Polytechnic Institute. I saw Big Computer with many little different-colors lamps which are blinked. Big Computer told ‘’ZH-ZH-ZH’ and ‘Knock-knock’ and I fell in love HIM in the first sight!

Now I am IT-specialist so far. But very want to work with animals or with little children. But now it’s impossible (only at home, after worktime!
) by different reasons (the first of all: I have no enough power for it!
By the way, I wrote poem one year ago: “Who I want to be…?”. In each stanza I described different professions. And each description start with “I don’t want to be …” (f.ex: “I don’t want to be a business-woman, with cold mind, at the High Position, far from own family;” etc – of course, this is translate from Russian). And last line is: “I want to be a human!”.
Thus, When I was 40 I understood – who I want to be
