  1. She looks so cool! It’s nice to know there are female fighter pilots as well. I am also happy to know there are more opportunities open for female in many countries.

    I have never liked fighting or being in a war, hence I won’t choose to go on a warplane.

    I had different dreams when I was young, one of them was being a teacher. I am a homeschooling mom now, so I kinda fulfilling my childhood dream by forcing my kids to be taught by me. 😀

  2. I like men and women who redefine gender roles.
    I never had odd dreams as a kid, I changed my ambitions quite often though, and I still do.
    Oh look, a rockstar! I want to be one!
    Oh look, a teacher! I want to be one!
    Oh look, a doctor! I want to be one!
    Oh look, a cook! I want to be one!
    Oh look, a street cleaner! I want to be one!
    I wanted to be almost everything. ?
