What are your overall feelings about being an architect?
It makes me feel happy, being able to create, design, and make a client’s dream house come true.
Can anyone become an architect?
Anyone can be one. You don’t have to be a talented drawer, as long as you learn the skills. I was never great at drawing, but I work adequately with rulers.
