☆  aspiring  高みを目指した


You can use aspiring to describe someone who is aiming to be successful in their field or career. Other words you could use are hopeful, ambitious, eager, longing, and an informal word that is often used, wannabe. One thing to remember if you plan to use ‘wannabe’ though, is that it can actually have a negative nuance.

For example:

He is an aspiring musician.
He is a wannabe musician.

She is an aspiring artist.
She is a wannabe artist.

In these situations, aspiring has the positive nuance of meaning the person will put in the effort to become a success. However, wannabe has the nuance that believe they just want to be a success without working hard.
