Every student's ultimate goal in college is to graduate. Getting that well-deserved diploma is a feat that must be celebrated, but it's also pretty valid for graduating students to feel a little queasy about what comes *after* graduation. Even Gen Z YouTuber Aika Agustin understands this struggle.

In a recent vlog, Aika opened up about her post-graduation worries and it's honestly downright relatable for many. ICYDK, Aika is a graduating student from De La Salle University. Don’t get her wrong, graduating is something she’s been looking forward to for the longest time, but it’s also a period in her life that she’s worried about.

For Aika, the post-graduation period is one of the scariest times in a person’s life, especially because exiting college meant entering a whole new phase in life. "After graduating, it’s like a whole different world. You have to keep trying to find yourself, keep trying to find a job that will make you happy or that will fulfill you. It’s a time to work on your big dreams, big goals, and with that, there’s also pressure to be successful," the content creator shares.

And like any graduating student, Aika also receives this popular question a lot: "So what will you do after college?" Aika’s answer is as raw and real (and valid!) as it’s gonna get: "I don’t know." She continued, "Right now, I’m just taking it step by step." According to Aika, she will continue her content creation journey even after college, especially since it's something she genuinely enjoys doing. At the same time, she also mentioned that she doesn't intend to make it her full-time job and that she's on the lookout for other things to pursue, career-wise. "I still wanna do other things. For now, I'm also looking for other job opportunities that I can do after graduation," she shares.


For now, though, Aika will be taking it slow and living in the moment. One thing she hopes to do after graduation is to travel and earn as much experience as she can from life in hopes of stepping out of her comfort zone and growing as a person. We're totally with you, Aika!
