35. Imposter Syndrome + My Experience as a Queen's Chancellor's Scholar

Have you ever felt like you don’t belong in your program/job/activity?  Do you ever question whether you earned your accomplishments on your own merit, or do you attribute them to pure luck?  Do you attribute your high grades to innate intelligence, or chalk it up to hard work? 

These are classic signs of Imposter Syndrome, a theory to explain why certain high-achieving individuals persist in believing that they are really not bright and have fooled anyone who thinks otherwise, despite earning outstanding academic and professional accomplishments.  

If you have, you're not alone. I've been there too - every day for 2.5 years, to be specific. In this episode, I get raw and real about the internal Imposter Syndrome I was facing when I hid my Major Scholarship for half of my degree. Why am I sharing? Certainly not to brag. I share for the young leaders that come after me in hopes that YOU have the confidence to own up to your accomplishments - no matter what size they are. 

If you're interested in learning more, please check out the links below! As always, please remember to send me a message if you listened! I LOVE hearing your feedback.
