I am a 20-year-old IT Professional that has 4 years of qualifiable industry experience, and I still think I’m not good enough and I often believe my successes aren’t my own. My childhood emotional abuse has left me with a heightened since of self-doubt and imposterism. Whether it is within my professional aspirations, physical appearance, or sociocultural relationships, I always have this lingering thought of “I don’t belong here” or “you’re not attractive enough to talk to ‘insert name here’”.

When MSA asked me to write this blog post, I didn’t know where to begin. My name is Harry Nguyen and I’m currently a junior studying business management with a minor in marketing. It only took me up until my third year of college to decide what I wanted to study and I think this is a good starting point to share my experience here at Iowa State.
