Future Generation


Our choices in life will always be influenced by the things around us – whether it’s our parents, our friends, what we learn in school, what we see on television, or what we experience in our surroundings. As we grow up, our experiences and memories mold our minds and play a major role into shaping our personalities as we mature.

There was a noon time show in the 90s with a segment called “Little Miss Philippines” and the hosts would always ask the contestants this question - “What do you want to be when you grow up and why?” and more often than not they’d always answer “Doctor”, because they said they wanted to help other people.

We were curious to find out what the younger generation's answer to those questions would be today.

We asked some mommies to be our accomplices to ask their kids precisely those questions. We also asked them not to coach their children so we could get their truthful answers.

Surprising, cute and hilariously honest, these were their answers to the big questions we gave them.
