re: When did you stop thinking of yourself as a junior/newbie? VIEW POST


When dev team members started to look towards me for advice. Also being able to communicate technical things to others tailored to their roles (editorial, design, pm, and stakeholder)


Great thoughts.


I second this thought! What a great feeling it is, too, when someone comes to you with questions and advice. I especially love the 'aha-moments' when I can fully explain something, front to back, without hesitation. It also makes me realize that when I use to ask people questions, I wasn't wasting people's time like I had always been afraid of. It's really empowering to be looked up to or seen as a teammate with valuable knowledge. Impostor syndrome is too easy to fall into.
