Career Path – Architecture

I have always loved architecture! I am very determined to pursue in this career! I have and am currently taking the necessary courses in high school to achieve my goal. Many people have asked me this same question, “Interior or exterior?” The complete question would be: Do you want to do interior design or exterior design? To all the people who have asked, I told them I would like to do both interior and exterior design. Why? Well…the reason is simple! Designing both interior and the exterior of a building is like finishing a puzzle completely by yourself. If I decide to only design for the interior of a building then I would only finish 50% of the puzzle and the other 50% would be given to somebody else to finish. I don’t think that feels very accomplished at all. Of course, in the architect industry, many things must be considered. For example, the budget, the land, and the people involved. But if giving a project halfway to somebody else, the concept of my design may not be understand by someone who only knew how to decorate the exterior without the slightest idea of making the interior and exterior match. It is like having a Valentine themed interior while the exterior is decorated with Christmas holiday spirit.

Am I rambling?

My Post-Secondary Pathway – McGill University

McGill University is another university famous for its architecture programs. I would also like to attempt to apply to this university also. Because McGill University is located in Quebec, Canada, knowing fluent French is also a good option if I wish to be accepted into McGill so I decided to take the French course in high school for all 4 years. Although, the people at McGill mainly speak English, it wouldn’t hurt to take the French course. The expectations for this university is also high. I know this because my friend’s sister did not get accepted into McGill even though she had a 85 average. McGill University might be a little bit harder for me to be accepted into compared to Ryerson University but I’m willing to, although it may sound cliché, give all my effort into the last 2 years that I have into my school work.

My Post-Secondary Pathway – Ryerson University

During high school, specifically during my grade 11 and grade 12, one of the universities that I would like to apply is Ryerson University because it is most famous for having good programs on architecture. Although the expectations to be accepted into this university is very high, I would still like to give myself a chance to go for Ryerson and I hope that Ryerson would give me that opportunity too. What I’m planning to do to achieve my goal is to draw on one page of my sketch book every day. Each day I would draw something that may be simple like a tree that I see nearby or my sleeping pillow or maybe even something abstract such as expressing myself visually. Why I do this is because when applying for Ryerson University, one of the requirements is to see artwork that I’ve drawn in the past.
