Do you struggle with Imposter Syndrome?

Today, we revisit a chat from 2019 with my friend, playwright and fiction writer, Jennifer Fawcett, where we talk about: how do we give ourselves "permission"?; the importance of making your own "stuff"; struggling with "who cares" and Imposter Syndrome; how powerful and necessary it is to tell our own stories; if girls face more challenges towards self-actualization; how to keep making things even if we feel inadequate; how writing her own material helped her overcome messages that she wasn't good enough; bullying as a "magnet" topic; depression and and the perspective making power of storytelling; narcissism and social media; teaching writing workshops in Tanzania and Rwanda; motherhood and its impact on creative work and process; how storytelling creates awareness of interconnection across cultures, languages, and experiences; why perfect isn't interesting; why we should "keep going and do it anyway."
