Race, gender, picking your army, and other ways to survive life in school.
The Impostor Syndrome is a challenge that faces many students. It has many different manifestations, but one of the more common ones is the feeling that "everyone else in the room is smarter" and that the student "doesn't feel like they belong/earned their place in the class”. These feelings can hurt students' performance, and more importantly erode their confidence having follow-on impacts throughout their academic career. Here, I talk about ways we can identify the Impostor Syndrome and help counteract these challenges. Register here.
