‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ by IAWA Member Carolina Ortiz Espinoza

It is the question that I ask from time to time to my 3 year old daughter. In this regard I propose some alternatives: astronaut, lawyer, engineer, pilot of airplanes or pilot of helicopters. She replies: helicopter pilot. A response that despite having grown surrounded by airplanes has been constant since the first time.

In contrast to this, I clearly remember that a few years ago in a law class they asked a classmate what she wanted to specialize in; She responded to space law.
