Here's What Kids Want to Be in the New Age


What do you want to be when you grow up?

It’s a timeless question, and for generations has prompted answers of “doctor,” “teacher,” “veterinarian,” or “princess.”

Technology has changed that.

A recent survey of teenagers finds the top choice, at 34%, is to be a You Tube star.  Blogger or vlogger came in second at 18%.  Musician or singer is third at 16%.

Seems everyone under 18 is looking for their moment of fame.

The survey of 1,000 kids by First Choice found three-quarters want to a career involving online videos of some sort.  One in four said they are hoping for an outlet for their creativity in their online career choices, with money being only a minor consideration.

These are the top ten choices:

1. YouTube star, 34%.

2. Blogger or vlogger, 18%.

3. Musician or singer, 16%.

4. Actor, 16%.

5. Filmmaker, 14%.

6. Doctor or nurse, 13%.

7. TV host, 12%.

8. Athlete, 12%.

9. Teacher, 12%.

10. Writer, 8%.
