A young girl wakes up with a universal question on her mind: What will I be when I grow up? Eager to make the most of her future, she spends the day imagining and then practicing many of the career paths she might one day choose to follow. From designing world-famous buildings to piloting a space shuttle to drafting a best-selling novel, this daydreaming little girl’s imagination has no limits.
