As a child, I was always fascinated by art and drawing. I loved to draw and write different font styles because it was always something fun for me. When I got to my final year of high school, I wanted to study a major that not only involved being creative but also created something useful and art like. I choose to pursue a degree in architecture because I was fascinated by how a small idea can become something bigger. I like how there are different ways to create a building using different materials, software and fabrication methods. There are almost no limits to what you can create in architecture. There are so many job opportunities you can possible do.

Although I am not certain what my dream job is, I am interested in residential architecture and furniture design. I’d like to first get an internship and later work in firms with commercial and residential projects. I like to be able to work in different firms and have different job positions. I think that way I can really get a full experience of what my dream job can be. I think most importantly my dream job would be, not about making a lot of money, but being happy at what I’m doing. I would like to have a job in drafting and maybe someday when I have more experience I’d like to help design buildings. My main goal is to succeed in my profession and be able to provide for myself and my family. I want to someday be able to get my architecture license and be content that I’ve made it so far.

I am a student at City Tech since August 2014, now finishing my second year. I love learning more about the different things I can do in school. To me architecture is tough to learn because there so many things you have to remember and learn to do but its always fascinating.

    1. Personally, I think the best option for me is working in the architecture field after graduating. I want to get some real experience first and then go back to school and be able to design and work as an architect would.

  1. Like you I don’t know what my dream job is, I guess we will know when we get there. But I do know I would like to learn more about sustainability and construction management.
