We all have Imposter Syndrome

Written by    Nov 6, 2017

First thing’s first, if you don’t know what imposter syndrome is, let me define it: it’s the fear of being exposed as a fraud, e.g., you’re not as smart/put-together/competent as people think you are.

But as my sophomore year schedule picked up, I realized that I was somewhat addicted to protecting myself with an iron shield.
