Hi! I am a Masters in Health Sciences student in the Environmental Health department. I feel the imposter syndrome where I may tell myself I don't belong here at Hopkins even as a student here at times.

Hi, I’m a PhD student in PFRH. I’ve found the dissertation process very isolating - there are limited opportunities for feedback/collaboration and it’s easy to fall into a place of self-doubt

Thank you for the advice on managing this
Caitlin
53:18
like, what is going well in class and what isn't. I've found that we're all struggling with similar things
Grace
54:15
I am still working through this but I am trying to change the stories I tell myself about myself (e.g. that I'm not smart enough)
Eric Hofmeister
54:20
Writing down some of these feelings of doubt helps me realize that some of them are unfounded or unnecessary
Caitlin
54:36
I like that, @Grace!
Caitlin
57:12
I also appreciated from this presentation that you reminded us that multiple people are looking at our applications. The humanization of the process is comforting to me for some reason
Caitlin
57:35
I like the idea of a gratitude journal for reflections
Shekeitha L. Jeffries
58:22
Journaling is very helpful. Thanks for sharing Eric!

Attending to my mental health through exercise/spending time with friends/going to therapy - it’s so easy to get caught up in the stress of grad school
