"When I young" doesn't sound OK to me. Is it grammatically right? I thought it should be "When I was young" or "When I was a young person".

Thanks in advance.

You are right. It should be "When I was young". Thus, it should be:
When I was young, I planned/hoped to become a doctor.

correction -

When I was young, I wanted to be a doctor, so I studied hard. I passed my secondary school exams but failed to achieve the required level. I felt bad about it but there were still some other career paths I could take and now I have chosen Computer Science. I thank God for what he has given me.
