Dream Job

I would love to be on a talk show or a morning news show. I know a little about everything. I always thought I would be great at that.
—Guest Kathie


When I'm older I would like to be a psychologist although it wasn't my first choice. My first choice was a fashion designer. But psychology is really interesting as it's a study of mind and human behaviour. Also, I love to solve problems by helping people.
—Guest Tamima

Mechanical Engineer

I want to be a mechanical engineer. I'm good at math and the engineering field is very interesting to me.
—Guest Tony

Helping People

My dream job is to help people who are mentally and/or physically unstable. Mentally, people just need someone to listen and show that they care. I've always had a gift for bringing out the truth in people and making them feel better and stronger afterward. Physically, I would love to be a Zumba instructor and dance until I can't dance anymore. My dream is to help people find their soul and encourage it to come alive. When I touch another life it is truly the most rewarding job anyone could ask for.

Music Therapist

Ever since I was a child, I have been easily swayed by the power of music - its power to console people or break their hearts, to make them think and dream, to bring them together, etc. Whenever I find myself in a low mood, I turn on the music and it brings my spirit out of the pit. If I can bring this healing power to others, I will feel I am fulfilling my life's purpose.

No More Hungry Children in US

I have always been interested in the health and nutritional care of children of all ages. I am now at a point in my professional career to put my volunteer interests together with my professional experiences. I would like to be involved in a company that has as a mission to help with the hunger issue in the US or to work for a not-for-profit company for this same cause.

I would love to do this because it would take the three things I am most interested in (space exploration, public relations, and writing) and put it all together into one job. Although becoming an astronaut would be very cool.

And, I'd love to work in about any position for the Ellen DeGeneres show!!! Guess I would need to clone myself to do all three? ;-)
