Q1: Is my dream really my dream?

The question above has been a journey all of itself, for me.  i_am

You see, I started my life as a scientist. I thought that I wanted to be a scientist, in fact I thought that I wanted to be a doctor. I truly did. It is only on learning about myself and who I am, what excites me and what makes me tick, that I realised that was probably the worst choice ever for me.

The difficulty was that people linked intelligence with the Maths/Sciences. In fact after being a scientist I moved into Maths/Science teaching, a much more humanistic role and a role that suited my personality much more, but still a Maths/Science role.  I got a mixture of responses, from both family and friends on my career change. One that stood out was ‘Why would you become a teacher? What a waste of your intellect!’.

So as I began my journey of self discovery, many people saw me as a failure, or wasting away my talent.

What I have discovered though, after many years of soul searching and career changes is that I am essentially creative, I am a people person, I am an altruist and I am a born teacher. All of these attributes together bring me to the beginning of my next journey: to birth my new dream.

Who are you? What makes you tick, what excites you and makes you want to get up each morning? The answers to these questions is the beginning of your dream.
