Which self is this?

Bookmarked Which self is this?

Like knowing to use an alias to represent my online persona in my first era, I instinctively knew before and during medical school that my online self, who, while earnest and genuine was also a bit messy and still figuring herself out, was not and never could be the self that was expected to show up to see patients.

Rachel shares her journey about growing up extremely online. She shares how personas change from using aliases to hiding behind the walls of social media to finally being comfortable with letting her personal and professional lives intersect online. It's wild how similar Rachel's journey has been to mine; I love reading about other people's experiences and finding the similarities in our journeys. However, I'm still perfectly happy sitting behind my alias and not matching my personal to professional life. I can't wait to dive in and share my journey.
