I want to go to pas­try school to learn how to make the best dough­nuts in town.” Younger sib­ling

Bhu­ven­raj Ganesh,

Brave eight, wants to be a po­lice­man. “My job is to catch bad guys like thieves and mur­der­ers. I want to pro­tect in­no­cent peo­ple from harm. I want to make Malaysia a safe and peace­ful coun­try.”

“I want to be a fash­ion de­signer when I grow up. I will de­sign cloth­ing for chil­dren and adults. I will use spe­cial fab­rics to make trendy dresses,”
