You had the courage to do something that's important to you, because if it wasn't important to you, you wouldn't care if you won or lost.
Dr Lisa Huzel (MD) is passionate about her work and about fencing. In fencing she's represented Canada at three veteran's world championships, and several Commonwealth fencing championships. She's also a member of the FIE medical commission. In spite of all of her achievements, she often feels like an imposter. In this episode of Silver is the New Gold, she provides perspective on imposter syndrome (aka, imposter phenomenon) from the points of view of both a fencing athlete and a medial professional.
