Challenge details

This challenge is all about your vision, your ambition and your dreams.

Here are some suggestions that may help you get started.

What do you live for?

Start by thinking about what you enjoy. What makes you happy? What are you passionate about and what motivates you?

Most people agree that if you do things you enjoy, you're more likely to be successful. This is really important when you are thinking about what career or job you will start.

What do you want to learn?

New skills can change your life! Think carefully about what could have the biggest positive impact for you. There are lots of skills that can have both a personal and professional benefit. For example, learning how to make presentations may give you more confidence as well as equip you with employability skills. Or maybe you want learn how to become a better photographer? Or perhaps an IT course could help your web ambitions.

This is your chance to learn a new skill that can literally change your life!

What is your dream job?

Think back to the first question about what you live for. Can you apply this to your dream job or career? You'll also need to think about your long term ambitions; do you want to earn a lot of money? Or is helping other people more important to you?

There is no right or wrong answer, but it's a good idea to have a dream job or dream industry to aim for.

Remember, we want your answer for each of the 3 questions; What do you live for? What do you want to learn? And what's your dream job?

Your submission can be as simple as one sentence for each of the 3 questions.

Think Creatively – and don’t be limited by text if you prefer images or film. If you prefer to detail the reasons behind your ideas then go ahead.
