Owning your authentic self in a world where you can't be categorized is a task that is equally challenging and liberating. But often we find ourselves in spaces where we are subconsciously told we don't belong. Join us as we embody our true selves and dismantle the struggles of imposter syndrome both within student development and in the workplace. In this session, we will provide the tools for you to confront your own relationship with imposter syndrome as well as empower you to support students as they navigate the most transformative years.

Presenters & Bios

Ms. Daniele 'Dani' Mascia (she/her/hers)
Quinnipiac University
Residence Hall Director (RHD)

My name is Dani Mascia and I have been in Residential Life over the last 6 years. I am originally from Long Island, New York and in 2015 I moved to Fairfield, Connecticut where I received my Bachelors and Masters degree from Sacred Heart University. After Sacred Heart, I moved to South Portland, Maine as a New Higher Education Professional at Southern Maine Community College as a Student Activities Coordinator and Resident Director. After almost a year, I moved back to CT and have called QU home for the last year and a half as a Residence Hall Director. My passion areas within my role include student development, exploring and embracing your identity, programming, building meaningful connections, and professional development. In my free time I enjoy hiking, going to the gym, spending time with friends/family, trying new restaurants, and most recently I taught myself how to DJ and mix music.
