Context: The more I see and read about that term, the more I start relating to it. It's been lurking at the back of my head for a while now and I feel like I'm preventing myself from doing things I've always wanted to do (in this case it is me wanting to exponentially grow the Student Makers space). It sucks when you have that inner voice telling you "you don't have enough experience, you'll never be good enough, you can't do it" and i don't know how to shut it off and focus on my priorities. I had to get this out of my head so I really appreciate it if you read this far and would love to know if you have any advice 🙇‍♂️

@amrith for what it’s worth, whenever you get impostor syndrome just chill and listen to 🎵 or play (with) something. Btw, you’ve already achieved much more than your peers and doing good work (speaking from lil more age experience). Also, this quote from Steve Jobs might uplift you a bit - “Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.” And you’re young so don’t be afraid of failing in your projects, time is on your side. Hope this helps. DM me anytime here or Twitter (@thedevarsh) if you need to talk to someone.

@amrith Hey man! You're better than you think. I'm actually really impressed by all the work your doing, trying to help students leave a mark on this world. It's ok to feel that way, you just have to keep moving. If you stop, it'll consume you and rip you apart. TBH you're one of those smart 18-year-olds I admire😁.
