Winning Entry

A career that I would like to have is to either be a Doctor or play in an Orchestra. One reason I would like to play in an Orchestra is because I love playing my Baritone, which is a bass instrument and it feels really good when I play. A reason that I would like to be a Doctor is that I like helping people.

A special thank you to Colin who didn't win the contest but his response has provided us with an idea for a future career article. We will investigate the rules surrounding hearing impaired applicants for service jobs. For his idea, we will send him a $ 10.00 gift card to the movies.

Hey! I have always wanted to be a firefighter, paramedic or a police officer. But then I found out you need to have good hearing so now I don't really know what I want to be.

Colin, Landmark MB
