Let My Creativity Flow

Corey | future architect or business leader

One of the most commonly asked question from adults to teens is, "what do you want to be when you grow up." As a teenager myself, i've had my fair share of getting asked these questions. However, despite me telling my uncles and aunts that I want to be the typical lawyer or doctor, I actually want to something more in the mathematics field or maybe someday write my own book or comic book.

I want to be an architect when I grow up or major in an architect like field. In school, math has always been easy for me, I've participated in many math competitions and this has fueled my interest in math even more. Being in an architect like field would allow me to use my mathematics inclined brain and let my creativity flow, when designing buildings.

On the other hand, business also interests me. I just love it when I can see something not so great grow and become something awesome and amazing. I could major in business and start my own business with my friends and become the next Steve Jobs or work for large corporations and climb my way to the top.

Overall, regardless of majoring in the business field or the architectural field, I want my career to include in creating something from my own mind.
