Am I a cybersecurity professional?

So this is my final year of college and during the placements season I was recruited by one of the big 4 in a cybersecurity role ,even though I had mainly development and AI/ML in my resume.I had done a few cybersecurity courses like cybersecurity-basics and digital forensics but my interest as well as my knowledge was fairly limited in these subjects compared to web-dev or ML or the core CS subjects.They offered me an internship as well as a full time offer and I accepted.Now it’s been a couple of months in to the internship and I am mainly working in the Identity and Access Management side ,moslty learning what it is and how it helps secure organizations.While it is interesting I am not sure if it’s the cybersecurity I imagined (you know like ethical hacking or application security and all that good stuff)Is it a good domain that I should continue in or should I look for other opportunities .Any advice on my future career path would be much appreciated.
