Hello, I'm Rina from The Netherlands.
Imposter syndrome is something I first heard when I decided to return to coding. Oddly enough, I don't think I really suffer from it (yet?). I think it may have to do with being a little older (40 yo) - I had a to learn a lot in my (rather varied) working life so far and succeeded learning new skills then - why not this time?
My main struggle is that I was always told what and how to study, and when and now that I have to figure it out on my own I feel rather clueless and overwhelmed. This challenge couldn't have come at a better moment and I wish all participants a good time completing it!
