When a fan complimented her and inquired on how to deal with low self-esteem, Nana Owiti infact revealed that she faces the same problem and always looks herself in the mirror in order to gain confidence.

" Asante sana. To be quite honest I doubt myself every once in a while. Impostor Syndrome I tell you...but I'm not where I was a year ago. I talk to myself on a mirror almost on a daily. I have to remind myself who I am". Part of her response read.

The mother of two also offered some possible solutions on how to navigate it, by believing in yourself more and surrounding yourself with positive-minded people.

Impostor Syndrome (IS) refers to an internal experience of believing that you are not as competent as others think you are.

It's a phenomenon that occurs to an individual and not a mental disorder. It is characterized by signs like self-doubt, attributing one's success to external factors and fear of not living up to one's expectations among others.
