Imposter Syndrome and Overcoming It

Imposter syndrome, according to the American Psychological Association, is a psychological phenomenon wherein you doubt your own skills, abilities, and inherent worth, no matter how much you achieve or accomplish. For many, it’s an inner voice that whispers, “you’re not good enough, you don’t know anything, and one day, everyone is going to find out.”

As part of the Diversity in Beer Writing Grant series, Holly Regan has written a story imposter syndrome and its impact on women in beer.
