PLANNING THE FUTURE
GEMMA (age 11)
When I grow up I`m going to be a ballet dancer. I love dancing, I go dancing three times a week. I`m going to travel all over the world and I`m going to learn French and Russian because I want to dance in Paris and Moscow. I`m not going to marry until I`m 35 and then I`m going to have two children. I`d like first a girl and then a boy ? but maybe I can`t plan that! I`m going to work until I`m 75. I`m going to teach dancing and I`m going to open a dance school. I like planning my future ? it`s very exciting! […]
