Show Notes

On today’s episode of Topping the Curve I interview Jade Baker, a 2L at Georgetown, the first Black woman Student Body Association President, and incoming summer associate at Winston & Strawn.

In this episode, Jade gets into the nitty gritty of imposter syndrome and what it’s like dealing with imposter syndrome as a minority in law school. Jade drops tips on how she overcomes feelings of inadequacy and suggests preparation, support systems, and more whenever those feelings begin to appear. 

We also talk about avoiding the trap of toxic motivation, focusing on what is best for you and your career trajectory, and balancing yourself in school.

Lastly, Jade talks about imposter syndrome in connection with your achievements before, during, and after law school. Here, we plant helpful reminders to help you overcome any feelings of inadequacy.
