What do you want to be when you grow up? When asked about what they would like to be when they grew up, about 3 in 10 American and British children answered that they wanted to be YouTubers or Vloggers – Careers, who make video on the internet for fame and fortune. Smaller preferences include getting a teacher, a professional athlete, or a musician. Being an astronaut last, 11%.
In China alone, children have a clear preference to be an astronaut – or, rather, a tabacco – to other potential professions. Children in China were also much more interested in entering space and had higher expectations of space in the coming decades.
