“I didn’t have on high heels, my outfit was like a secretary and I was supposed to be best friends with the boss of the firm and he wasn’t convinced, he said oh I’m taller than the boss and that was a problem for him.
“So he had me take off my shoes for the second time, we did the reading again and it was even better than the first time. In my mind, I was like ‘yea I gat this’ based on talent not looks but I got a call back saying no that the person who had contacted me said she was outnumbered and they went with the more obvious reason, the shorter person.”
