Overcoming Self Doubt as A Creative
Art and creativity can be subjective, yet we can recognise powerful and impactful creations that share different views, stories and voices. Yet, this ability to share something new may also come with feelings of doubt and imposter syndrome. So, how do you grow your confidence in yourself and your work with the wider world.
