Overcoming impostor syndrome
Bristol Rails Girls: March 22, 2014 Slides
I gave a short conslusion talk at RailsGirls Bristol. I quickly covered what impostor syndrome, attempted a live demonstration, and mentioned some ways to overcome it.
I enjoyed giving this talk, not only because Rails Girls events are always fun and supportive events to attend, but was also an intersting personal questioning to undertake. The “live demonstration” of an inner monologue is an insight into my attempts to reconcile fighting self-doubt and avoiding complacency.
