Being the life of the party is celebrated in our society. Someone who is vivacious, always eager to start a conversation—in a word, an extrovert—is considered to have an advantage in many social situations.
But people who are introverts don't often get celebrated in the same way.
Michaela Chung wants to the change that. She's the author of The Irresistible Introvert: Harness the Power of Quiet Charisma in a Loud World.
Michaela talks to Candy about how she came to embrace that part of her personality and what inspired her to share this knowledge with others.
