70% of people have experienced some form of imposter syndrome at least once in their lives. It is this nagging feeling that we think someone else might find out that we’re a ‘fake’ - that our achievements are solely due to luck, and nothing to do with skill, talent, or our effort.
Luckily, in recent years, people have started to become more vocal about experiencing Imposter Syndrome - but I think there’s a lot more to be done. Being vocal is only the start. We need to start sharing experiences and strategies to deal with it. Otherwise, it’s not going to get better.
In this talk, I want to share my experiences and my strategies - or hacks that I used to deal with it. I hope to share it so you can use them or find out what works for you.
Big thank you to Intelliware and Women Who Code for an awesome event!
