Congratulations Malika. I felt the same after passing the exam, not sure if we are proving to ourselves or others.. could be a lack of confidence.. or a constant need to grow and move forward.
But its something we've earned and we should be confident about it.
I agree, it is a tough exam and it definitely boost our confidence level.
That sense of confidence exists right up till the moment when you meet a PMP holder who has no business managing any project bigger than a bread box.
While the exam is challenging, attaining the certification is not a measure of competency and hence depending on the company you work for and the folks you work with, they might have positive or negative feedback about those who hold the certification.
Imposter syndrome is a real phenomenon. It actually can occur no matter how many years experience or qualifications one may have. Well done and welcome to the PMP club :-)
How is PMI handling the rescheduling of exams for the coronavirus? Here is Massachusetts USA the state just declared a state of emergency and I am scheduled to take the exam on 3/17/2020. They state doesn't want people attending any group meetings or events and many universities, including Harvard, are closing down their schools and moving everyone online in 5 days. I can't find a contact number for PMI...can someone share a customer service phone number I can call?

Really great to see the proud sense of achievement for your accomplishment. It is not abnormal to struggle with Imposter Syndrome. In a way, it is better to be humbled than not.
But in the end, actions speak louder than certifications.
Congratulations Malika, great achievement.
We always feel proud when we achieve things no matter how small or big they are but be cautious not to get over confident because as Kiron mentioned, having a certification is merely an indication that you have advanced knowledge in this domain but definitely not a measure of someone’s competency level. Your experience is what matters and combined with knowledge, it becomes a long term recipe for success.
Good Luck with your future plan.
