I have been in the data game for 3 years and have been in a variety of different roles from being a dashboard developer, to a SQL/Python developer & data engineer.

I’m having impostor syndrome when it comes to being a data scientist/ analyst because I’ve never been put in a role where my organization wants me to build ml or stat models. Is this norm? I’m very frustrated by this
