Being an architect takes more than just good drawing skills. There are a lot of other aspects involved (like, will there be math involved?) that you have to take into consideration if you want to pursue it as a career. Taking up Architecture as your course in college is one step towards this dream profession, but it's also not as easy as it sounds. Your days will consist of working non-stop on plates, among other things.
If you want to learn more about what it takes to become an architect, talking to someone in the field might help you gain insights. But if you personally don't know an architect, then following YouTube content creators in the field would be the next closest thing.
