@Graeme Thanks so much!!! This collection of stories is a of a support resource. I've heard a lot about women in tech especially battling this, so that 59% statistic of yours that I saw somewhere makes sense in my mind.
For me, add being a total beginner and a lady of color in a city that isn't nearly as saturated with tech and networking opportunities as the one I just left, and the syndrome is pretty much par for the course. I'm learning from people and resources like yours that the most effective "solve" is probably being ready for it to hit and talking back to and challenging the fear when it comes up. "Facts vs. feelings" is my current self-check mantra. Going for it!
