Hotel heiress Nicky Hilton was so eager to be a teacher when she was growing up, she and her older sister Paris Hilton would hold after-school classes for their friends.

While Nicky has gone on to launch a career as a fashion designer, she admits that she initially wanted nothing more than to educate a classroom filled with students.

She tells Maxim magazine, "I always wanted to be a teacher. My friends and cousins would come over after class and Paris and I would play school. I was the math teacher; Paris was the English teacher.

"We would make assignments on the copier and give them all homework. I had an intercom, and I would page them to my office."
