Impostor Syndrome: Am I Who I Say I Am?
Law school exposes you to new people, innovative ideas, thinking like a lawyer, and professional opportunities. However, as an emerging professional you may question the validity and worth of all of these things – and yourself. How do you know if your fear and doubt are part of personal growth and developing new professional skills and identity, or if they are something more?
Do these statements sound familiar?
- "I avoid evaluations if possible and have a dread of others evaluating me."
- "When people praise me for something I’ve accomplished, I’m afraid I won’t be able to live up to their expectations of me in the future."
- "I rarely do a project or task as well as I’d like to do it."
- "I often compare my ability to those around me and think they may be more intelligent than I am."
Join The Graduate Mentoring Center for a discussion about feeling like an impostor, how these feelings shape us, and steps we can take to not let them steal our joy and success.
Facilitator: Dr. Maria Hamilton Abegunde, Founding Director of IU Graduate Mentoring Center. Moot Court Room, noon.
