My name is Isabel Fong and I dream to work as a businessperson like Diane Reichenberger. I was inspired to want to work as a businessperson by my family, because most of my family members have their own business. I remember when I was little, I always wanted to have my own thing.
Meeting Diane was life changing!
My mentor Diane Reichenberger is a very inspiring person, because I love how she’s such a very hardworking person, who likes facing new challenges and is not afraid of things going wrong. Diane told me that she has always enjoyed her job and likes meeting new people. She owns her own company called Giiv.
She has traveled around the world. One of her favorite places she has travel to was China. She loved it so much that she wanted to live there. She has encouraged me to overcome my fears and to never be afraid. She told me, “NEVER be afraid- LIFE IS FUN! THIS IS YOUR LIFE! ENJOY IT ALL!”..and I’m going to do it .
Diane.. she’s so funny, nice and fun to be around. I really enjoyed asking her questions about her profession and how she became successful.
1. Who inspires you ?
– The person who inspired me to become a person in the business area was actually my dad’s secretary.

I wanted to have all the things she had.
