TIMTalks: Anjali Thakkar — Conquering the Imposter Syndrome: The Inspiration for TIMtalks
Some 4,400 stories of failure and success walk the MIT campus each day, silent inside undergraduates hurrying from class to class. MIT senior and biology major Anjali Thakkar founded TIMtalks — which she envisions as an annual event at the Institute — to give voice to those stories.
At the inaugural TIMtalks, in the Stata Center on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, Thakkar and four other students spoke for approximately 15 minutes each. The students’ stories, rich with insight and emotion, unveiled the determination, relentless hard work — and also the failure and doubt — that lie beneath every facade of smooth success.
