Identity and Belonging

Who do I take after?


We wrote letters to ourselves about our future dreams‌ And we found out what our parents dreamed of at our age‌


Dear me; Now I am 14 and I am in my third year at the school, in 20 years, I will be 34 year old, I think that at 34 I will be studying because I will study medicine and that is a very long carrer. But in the future, I hope that I will be a very good surgeon. Franco C.

The dream of my grandfhater was to be a very important bussinesman and he became the manager of YPF.


Dear me; When I read this letter again in 20 years, I will be 34 years old. That is hard to imagine at the moment. Right now I am in my third year at the school. I hope to play football in a good club. I am training every day. Now I am playing in Lanus but I played in San Lorenzo and other clubs. So I am hoping to start playing in the first category when I turn 18. I have a lot of contacts. I would like to play in San Lorenzo or other big club and then go to Europe. But I don’t know what is going to happen in many years. Tomås G.


Dear me; When I read this letter again in 20 years, I will be 34 years old. Now I am in the school . I expect to finish that in 3 years. I hope to go university. I will study medicine. I will be a dentist. Now I dream to be Lean’s girlfriend, one of the singers of One Direction. He is perfect, his eyes, his mouth, his hair, his body. I am crazy. I know that but I don’t want to marry an old and angry man. Every day I imagine that I am a superstar and every body loves me. I am going t travel to Australia and I am going to meet Clinton Cove, he is my favorite youtuber. Sofía

My grandmother wanted to study at University when she was my age. But at that time people didn’t have money. She wanted to be a teacher. She expected to have sons and marry a beautiful man. She didn’t want to work, but it was necessary, because of the money issues.


Dear me, In my future I would like to finish my school studies first. Then I am going to study medicine in the university because I’d like to be a doctor. I like to help people with problems or injured body parts or ill people. But the only thing I am not sure about is the speciality. I’d like to be an oftalmologist, radiologist or forensic doctor. But medicine isn’t the only plan. I’d like to continue studying instruments like drums, guitar, bass, piano, violin and harp. And my last plan is to travel to Germany. I hope I can do it. Berenice

When my moher was my age she didn’t know what to do in the future. She couldn’t imagine what she wanted to do because she didn’t know anything about jobs. Finally, when she needed to decide she started studying law but then she discovered she didn’t like it. So she started tudying to become a kindergarten teacher.


Dear me, In a few years I will be studying at medical University of Buenos Aires to become a doctor. When I finish my studies I will specialize in gynaecology, and then I will study to become an obstetrician, to help pregnant women have their babies. BelĂŠn.

Nowadays I am studying in an Art Academy to become a professional ballet dancer. I hope to improve my style of dancing but I know that I have to work very hard for it. I would like to be like Eleonora Cassano, the best ballet dancer in Argentina. She is my inspiration. I expect that I will travel around the world when I become famous. I will meet many people and I will know a lot of great artists. So I am hoping to spend the next four years practicing in the Academy. If I make it I will get a scholarship in Juliart. So I will make my dreams come true. It’s going to take a long time but I think I’m on the right way. Micaela L.

I expect to make successful contacts and a lot of money. I am aiming to join a match with the selection of Argentina and to go to France to play in Paris St Germain.
