I'd like to hear you talk about impostor syndrome, what is your relationship with it and how to fight it. I'm looking for jobs right now & I feel extremely uncomfortable talking about my skills and achievements and I'm constantly downplaying them.

As someone who has (mostly) overcome imposter feelings, I was thrilled to give my top 6 tips for overcoming imposter phenomenon/syndrome:

  1. Recognize it as a trauma response, rather than a logical fact
  2. Get a hobby you are bad at
  3. Gather empirical evidence of your greatness
  4. Make a list of your strengths
  5. Develop a sense of self
  6. Get over yourself!
