Have you ever dealt with imposter syndrome? I go to a PWI that's pretty prestigious and even though I'm very involved in community organising/student leadership and social justice, and do decent in school I don't know I just feel like I don't deserve it. I feel like I'm just faking it and I don't get how people don't see right through me... I worry that one day people will see that I'm just 'scamming' them and I'll get kicked out. Have you ever had feelings like that? Any advice :(
i haven’t had those experiences hun. i work really hard and i try my best to let my hard work speak for itself. white people really have constructed a society where people of color fell like they don’t deserve success and white people feel entitled to it. the more i learn about black history and the injustices in the country, the more i know that i will always have to work twice as hard to get half as far, but i have to celebrate me or doing that work will be impossible.
