Having self-doubts is something most of us have to deal with. But having self-doubts before one even begins is not a good way to begin your studies. Keep these things in mind: 1. pre- College portfolios are relatively meaningless. Your work and the way you view the world will change drastically in the next several months anyway. Can you draw? Can you visualize in 3D? These are important skills that your portfolio may not be addressing. 2. While schools tend to emphasize art, the fact is that the vast majority of energy spent in the architecture profession is on things other than art. 3. While you may have self-doubts, you will find that if you express yourself with conviction, you will capture at least half of your audience. In other words, work on your confidence, knowing that there will be many who will see things your way if you can express yourself well.
