What did you want to be when you were a kid?

Have the career aspirations of children changed with the times?

Thanks to the time and generosity of Mrs. Cathi Dunham and her Grade 6/7 class at Selkirk Elementary School – What’s Up Yukon invites you to take a stroll down memory lane.

These two submissions did not have artwork with them:

There are so many choices, so many careers, it’s hard to pick just one. But I will find one career. Maybe I don’t know what I want to be right now at the age of 11, but some jobs that I find interesting are police officer or firefighter. I have to graduate high school.

When I grow up I want to become an electrician.

When I was small I saw my dad at the college helping to make apartments for the

students and I wondered if I should become an electrician.

My dad said, “Its good money and I like my job.”

My dad has been able to fix a lot of things like our TV and my game system.

Some of my requirements are to get my math to grade 11 and my grade 12 English. I

would like to go to Yukon College to study. I hope I succeed.
