Lovely article, Amardeep. As a high school student, I have had the same feeling of struggling with my identity. Especially when we are told to follow this flawed education system well into our twenties. Although I still plan on attending university, I have no clue exactly what I want to do. But now, I know that I can try different things and search for my ikigai. I also really want to visit Japan, so hopefully I can do that too! Apart from that, I have read Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari, and if you haven't checked it out, I highly suggest it; one of my favorite reads to this day :)
