Confidence in Another Chapter of Life. This was the title of my talk at BAC Career Club Event. And like I truthfully admitted in my talk, I almost turned it down as I do not think I am the most confident person ever. But the more I think about it, the more I realised that it actually makes me a good candidate for the talk. I am a NORMAL person like anyone else. I have self doubts, I second guess myself and I often get bombarded with imposter syndrome, ‘what if they knew that i am not good enough OR what if there is someone better than me?’. It then goes downhill from there. But that in fact makes me more qualified to talk about CONFIDENCE — from a point of view that is more relatable to everyone. I’m glad I gave the talk. I got to meet new people, I got to speak to so many of you who followed me since my uni days, and you know what was life giving? Hearing you say ‘because of you, I did not give up. Now I am a writer’. That made everything worth it. So, thank you for this experience. It’s one that I will never forget.
