Have you ever felt like an imposter? Like someone is going to find out you really don’t belong in science? You are not alone. Dr. Michael Southam-Gerow, VCU Psychology professor, is an expert on imposter syndrome. This is a well researched phenomenon where high-achieving individuals (like you!) suffer from an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as “fraud”. Dr. Southam-Gerow is highly entertaining and will give you all some great tips on how to internalize how awesome you are!
