My Feelings on Being the Youngest in Most of the Meetings I Attend.
As a college student I have always been the youngest in various meetings
- •Meetings with ProfessorsWhen I meet with professors who are about 10-30 years older than I am, they always bring up old references or talk about their past, resulting in confusion.
- •Lab meetingsI'm a research assistant and the lab meetings consist of much older people, probably 30-40 years older than me. I usually end up teaching them about their phone and technology.
- •Self confidenceBeing surrounded by older professionals who know what they are talking about is very intimidating. Most of the time I fake my knowledge because the material is over my head. Some how I've made it this far. Fake it 'till you make it!
- •FutureIn 10 years, when I'm not probably going to be the youngest one in a meeting, I'll probably still be clueless, but with more experience.
