After graduating from university, I was thrown into the sea of adulthood.

Here’s the thing about our current education system – it doesn’t prepare us for our whole working lives ahead.

So after I flung my mortarboard into the air, adulthood came by and smacked me in the face.

At that point in time, one of the biggest concerns me and my peers had was our jobs.

It felt like we had to decide right on the spot what we wanted for our careers, and there was little room for error since anything that we did in our 20s would serve as building blocks of our career.

I was 23… and not like one of my overachieving peers, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted in life.

(TBH, LinkedIn just added to this ball of anxiety because everyone seemed to be acing the game, spamming notable achievements on their profiles.)
