Do You Feel Like a Fake Noodle?              

Do you ever feel like a fake noodle? You know, like an impasta? Imposter syndrome is a phenomenon that impacts many students. It is a pattern of behavior where people doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent, often internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud. In its most destructive manifestations, it can cause self-doubt, insecurity and even impact our ability to realize our true and full potential. In this workshop, you will experience a space of empathy, understanding, and opportunity to explore why mposter syndrome occurs and what we can do to combat it.
