I want to be an architect

Asked Troutdale, Oregon

#architect #architecture Hi, I’m Shayla, I’m in 5th grade, and I aspire to be an architect when I grow up, but I know it’s a hard job to do well with. I’d like advice on whether that’s something I should do as an occupation. A few things about me; I have really good grades, I’m an extrovert, I love math and drawing and legos, I just started getting into architecture, and I have really good long term memory. Hope this helps.

Hi, Shayla,


One thing that helps anyone decide on a career path is self-knowledge, which you have! Good for you! Keep exploring.


It is typical to be interested in different things as you grow. You’re in 5th grade so expose yourself to many careers and ideas and subjects. As you take middle and high school classes you may well discover new inspiration. Or not! It’s too early to decide for sure.


Keep taking advanced math, art, physics, and drafting in high school if you can to be prepared for any technical and design-related college program. Also try new things. Extroverts thrive on being around people. This will be important for your career happiness in the future.
