Takeyah Young: How do we overcome impostor syndrome?
Described an industrious thinker, Takeyah Young is a personal and professional leadership consultant, and STEM advocate who operates at the intersection of innovation, leadership, and lifestyle. An engineer and coach by training, project manager and educator in practice, and entrepreneur at heart, she brings together her technical background, project management, technical writing, STEM-influenced program management experience, and data-driven analysis to provide solutions in service of organizational and programmatic sustainability. Essentially, she creatively solves problems (typically using technology) with a little less pain than organizations expect. When she is not nudging people to take imperfect action in their lives, step up to their gifts, and build business confidence, you can find her rocking colorful vintage dresses, drinking green smoothies, perusing design blogs, rotating her passport, and taking calculated risks…spreadsheets and all. In episode 357 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Takeyah chose Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, what made her want to join Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., why her focus is helping Black and Brown women in STEM, how she was recognized as a changemaker by the White House Summit on the United States of Women, why values are so important in reaching life goals, what you should do if you feel like you’re in a rut right now, how we can overcome impostor syndrome, why people should take imperfect action, and time management tips for college students.
