What can I use instead of ... in the following sentence? I mean some verb that "make true" / "support" my childhood dream!

Later on, in high school I was always thinking about choosing a field of study that not only increases my technological knowledge but also …. My childhood dream to be a business woman.

    I would say "Fulfills".

  • "to fullfil" is better than "to realize" in this context, IMHO.

You could say:

I was always thinking about choosing a field of study that would enable me not only to increase my technological knowledge but also to realize my childhood dream of becoming a business woman

    or realise, depending on which country you're from! Jan 29 '14 at 18:26
  • Actually it would need to be "help me (to) realize" or similar. The study cannot realize a dream, but the person studying can!
