The Planner
00:29:49

You can’t help but dream about the big houses in the fancy neighborhood in your town. One day, that could be you. It’ll take hard work, focus, and a clear plan for how to accomplish your goals.


But when you decide to change those plans, you’ll ask yourself one question: Will you still end up in that big house on the hill — or are you destined for something more?

The Gymnast
00:27:29

You’re always on the move. Not just moving from town to town — with your siblings and your foster parents — but moving your feet, your arms, and your hands. You love to feel your body in motion. But the way that you move isn’t always understood by grown-ups who think they know better.

In order to fulfill your destiny, you have to follow your heart.

The Genius
00:24:06

You dream of traveling through space and exploring the vast reaches of the solar system. Because in space, you don’t have to explain yourself. You get to explore the questions you want to ask.


But if you want to solve the mysteries of the universe, you’re going to have to learn to focus.

The Thrill Seeker
00:28:22

You like to test your limits and live life on the edge. That doesn’t always sit well with your mom, who just wants you to be safe and to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground.


But safety is the exact opposite of what you need. For you, the sky’s the only limit.

The Hero
00:24:14

You love asking questions wherever you go, especially “why.” Why is the world the way that it is? Why doesn’t everyone get along? Why can’t we all just be better people? 

All those questions lead you to a career you never expected on the silver screen. But in order to live up to your potential, you’ll have to find the honesty, generosity, and bravery that lives deep inside you.

The Kid
00:27:42

You’ve always been wiser than your years, but not everyone is ready to let you grow up. You’d rather be watching scary movies than playing dress-up. 

They might not be listening now, but they’re going to hear your voice soon enough.

The Racer
00:21:21

Life moves slow in your sleepy little hometown. You long to escape to someplace else, where life is fast, exciting, maybe even a little dangerous. 


It’s a place that only exists in your imagination. But someday, you’re going to bring it to life.

The Astronaut
00:29:15

You're used to relying on yourself to succeed in a man’s world — and you’ve proved yourself everywhere from the tennis court to Stanford University. But in the 1970s, there’s still one place no woman has gone before: outer space. 

This time, if you want to succeed, you can’t go it alone. You’re going to have to learn how to be part of a team.

The Songwriter
00:26:19

You're a high school misfit with the wrong hair and wrong clothes. You feel like you'll never find anything you're good at, or anyone you can relate to. Then, you discover hip hop, and find a home in the theater. You’re determined to be a star on Broadway.

There are just two problems — there’s no hip hop on Broadway, and no one who looks like you. So you’re going to make your own way.

The Champion
00:28:49

You’re passionate about the law, but in the 1960s and 1970s, the men around you don’t think women belong in a courtroom. But you’ll overcome sexism to show them that women belong wherever decisions are being made, and make a compelling case why gender inequality is wrong.
