As Isabel details,
"I write in cursive 'cause it makes me feel smarter," came to me one day after leaving school. I had left my computer at home and had to hand-write part of an essay, and I did so in cursive. I asked myself why I chose to write in cursive and looking at the writing, I realised it gave me a sense of distinctiveness and individuality, regardless of the words I put down. Even though I didn't feel confident in the essay, the cursive made it feel better. That idea became the basis for this song. Later that year, I moved to LA and found myself experiencing feelings of inferiority and doubt. Yet, I found myself doing little things or putting up different facades that would make me feel better about myself, or at least appear so. I wanted to write a song that encapsulated that feeling of imposter syndrome and conquering it."
