8IntroductionHello everyone, my name’s Susanna, Suzie for short. I’m 20 years old. At the moment I’m in the second year at art school and I often dream about my future. I have big plans and I like to tell you a bit about them.
9BodyMy most immediate plans are holiday plans. I’m going to visit my brother, who’s working in Australia. My mother and I are going to spend Christmas with him in the summer sun. I’m very excited about that.When I return, I have to make a final decision about which course I’m going to study next year. I’m still not sure- I might do fashion design or I might do landscape design. It’s difficult because I’m interested in both clothes and gardens. If I choose landscape, I’d like to work with my friend Jasper. He’s brilliant with gardens and we’ve already worked on two together. It was great fun and we get on very well.In five or ten years’ time I would like to have my own business and work for myself, like my father. He has his own building business. I might even do a business course after I finish art school.Of course, one day I hope to marry and have children ideally, before I’m 30, but I can’t plan when I’ll meet the right person and I haven’t got a boyfriend at the moment
10ConclusionIn my dream I see myself at 40 running a successful gardening company with about 20 employees. I’ll design beautiful gardens for beautiful people. I’ll have a beautiful house, two beautiful children and, of course, a husband who’s as successful as I am. Who knows, it might even be Jasper!
