Student or Learner
I would like to ask native speakers of English about the following things.
“She grew up to be a famous singer” means that she grew up and ,as a result, became a famous singer, right?
How would it be explained that her parents’ purpose for bringing her up was to make her a famous singer in the future.
“She was brought up to be a famous singer” is correct? I would like to know other variations.
How about the following? She grew up in order to be a famous singer. She grew up in order to be a famous singer. To be a famous singer, she grew up.
In order to express the purpose, to infinitive should be used with a verb transitive?
Thank you very much.
