‘I am not supposed to be here; I’m an imposter’

In my last blog post, I briefly mentioned how I’m worried that I’ll end up “faking it” my whole life. I heard NPR’s interview with this researcher a few weeks ago, and I just had the chance to watch her full TED talk today. Amy Cuddy’s story about faking it until you become it is wonderful. It’s at 15:45 (although the rest of the talk is great too!).

P.S. Apparently, if you stand like Wonder Woman for two minutes, you will actually feel more powerful. So, guess what I’m doing before every interview from now on?
