1. That nagging feeling that you're about to be "found out". Feeling not quite good enough, all the time. Like your accomplishments were fluke, or luck. Feeling like you don't deserve a seat at the table. Like you're the only one that feels that way. We're here to show you're not.
Don’t fake it. Still make it.
The Imposter Project is a documentation project by Nathalie Marquez Courtney, Clio Meldon and Danielle Morgan. It's centred around Imposter Syndrome and aims to profile inspiring women we admire talking about how they experience, handle and own their Imposter Syndrome, harnessing it to help them create great work.
is that feeling that you’re “faking it”, and due to be “found out” at any minute. You dismiss your success as luck, your talent as fluke, and aren’t able to internalise your achievements. It affects lots of people, women and creatives especially. Meryl Streep, Tina Fey and Sheryl Sandberg are just some of the women who have spoken about feeling like a fraud (but they didn't let that stop them).
