I'm 20 years old and my dream is to design and help build a big part of a city or a new city. Is this possible??

I am a 20 year old high school graduate. My dream is to one day be the one in charge of designing a whole new city or a large part of a city. I need advice from people with knowledge on this subject.

Must I be an architect in order to achieve this? Is this dream even achievable?
Do you know of anyone who has achieved this before?

I love knowing things, so if you have anything at all on this subject that you think that I should know the feel free to tell me.
