Imposter Syndrome

Episode 4 – Imposter Syndrome

(Ruvimbo)

(00:22:48) Listen >

The show opens with Ruvimbo’s interview with Gelila, who wrestles with self-doubt in challenging the archetype of someone who looks like her on university campus, wondering if she’ll ever be good enough. Ruvimbo then expands on these feelings of self-doubt and alienation in her self-interview. This uncomfortable stretching of her identity will all be worth it if she can help contribute to a better future, and she draws empowerment from seeing the portrayal of strong Black African Women in Black Panther. The episode ends with Ruvimbo’s interview with Edil, a fourth year student who is combating the Imposter Syndrome by engaging in communities and spaces that fight back against racist and islamophobic attitudes on campus.
