Alicia Frame, Senior Data Scientist at Neo4j, found it intimidating to break into the male-dominated field.
“I struggled for many years with imposter syndrome–I was afraid someone would realize I wasn’t ‘really’ qualified or wasn’t as smart as I was ‘pretending’ to be. That held me back tremendously,” Frame said. “As I progressed, I realized that it’s incredibly important to remind yourself that you are smart and confident and that you know what you’re doing.”
