Melissa Fang - Reinvention Stories

"Tell me about a time in your life when you had to reinvent yourself.  What happened?"

It was recently, because I guess my reinventing was I changed from one job to another. Which means that I have to present myself in a more confident way.  Instead of being shy Melissa at the previous job where I was not going to be anything or do anything -- I'm now more in control. I feel like I'm in the process, actually of reinventing myself as we speak.  It's hard. I'm forcing myself to make phone calls to people I don't know to do things that are just like 'I would never have done this.' But it feels good when you take these steps and you do something, even if you don't succeed in your goal, I feel good taking little steps towards changing my life."
