Knowing your IKIGAI

Aparajita Sahoo, Inclusion Specialist and Head of Inclusion at JSS International School, Dubai in her engaging presentation introduced students to the concept of IKIGAI, a Japanese philosophy that emphasizes finding one’s purpose and living a fulfilling life. Through thought-provoking examples and real-life stories, Sahoo encouraged students to reflect on their interests, talents, and the values they hold dear. She highlighted the importance of aligning personal goals with societal needs, emphasizing the fulfillment that arises from pursuing meaningful endeavors.

IKIGAI revolves around four fundamental elements: what we love, what we are good at, what the world needs, and what we can be paid for. Exploring these aspects can help individuals discover their passion, strengths, and the impact they aspire to make.

By delving into the concept of IKIGAI, Aparajita Sahoo empowered students to envision a future where their skills, interests, and passions converge. Her presentation ignited curiosity, inspired self-reflection, and provided students with a framework to shape their life choices and find purpose in their journey ahead.
