What is the value of a PhD to you?

To me, I did lack confidence before and it's given me massive confidence, it's shown me that I can do anything that I put my mind to and I didn't believe in myself before, I mean I got a first class degree but I didn't think I was that good. A PhD has made me realise that I am quite intelligent and I can hold my own against people who I thought were miles and miles out of my league, so it's given me confidence not just in the academic world but in everything I do.
