Hi everyone! Melissa Lim here, one of the '19J bloggers at INSEAD's Fontainebleau campus. NB for new readers (aka my friends and family): "'19J" is INSEAD-speak for "please let me graduate in July 2019 :)" I was born in San Francisco, majored in Computer Science and Cognitive Science at UC Berkeley, and spent the first part of my career building AI, productivity, and education products at Microsoft. I've worked and lived in eight cities worldwide--so far!--most recently Paris, France.

I was stressed out, doing the work of two people (I know because they replaced me with two), working 14 hour days, weekends and some public holidays, bored stiff with the repetitive work I was doing, on medication for stress, and was told at a team meeting that I had to pull my socks up and work harder, not ask for more interesting work. I decided to quit. As did a few others.
