Becoming
Who do you want to be when you grow up?
Becoming is a new podcast where we explore the age-old question of “Who do you want to be when you grow up?”. As children, some of us had crystal clear ideas of what our future would look like. Others opted to go with the flow. Whatever our experiences, they’ve all influenced who we are and the path that we are on today. Through this podcast, you’ll get a glimpse at the paths and lives of some really interesting people, and the journey they are on.
