Do you secretly worry that others will discover you’re not as intelligent or competent as they seem to think you are?
Do you feel like everyone around you knows way more than you?
Do you attribute your accomplishments to luck or being a fluke?
Does it feel like the people around you have it all together while you have no idea what’s going on?
Did you answer yes to any of the above questions?
Well, you’re not alone, my friend. Impostor Syndrome is something that many of us face but don’t necessarily know how to navigate through. This presentation and discussion will focus on understanding Impostor Syndrome, who experiences it and how and how we can combat it.
Jen Bloomer will be leading this session. She is an iOS developer at Detroit Labs, where she graduated from their first Apprenticeship program. She is also an instructor and member of the Resident Cast at Go Comedy! Improv Theater.
• “It’s easy to feel like I don’t know what I am doing, and I might not ever know what I’m doing. It’s like they are all futuristic high speed trains and I am the first train ever.” – Jen, on learning how to be a developer
