I was mistaken for 16 today, when a woman stopped me to talk about me walking everyday in the neighborhood for exercise. She was shocked when I told her I was 24.

I'm on my way to 31. I am often told I look younger. Recently three people have assumed I am in my lower 20s, one infact convinced I could be no older than 20.
It is flatering of course, but in terms of my professional life, it can be frustrating, as people assume I am younger and wonder how I am in the position I am, they have no idea how old I am or my work history or experience. But becuase they assume I am younger, they find it hard to see how I am in my current job role and career level.1
