Who am I?
I apparently have a very common name. On Reunion.com, there were 9 of me. I was an 18 year-old from Arizona, a 29 year-old black woman from Texas, a landscape coordinator for a farm, a special education director, and I even saw pictures of a Melinda, complete with huge belt buckle and cowboy hat, riding a horse and winning an award. The Facebook profile that came up wasn't mine though, which makes me wonder: employers go to the Net to dig up info on an applicant. I wonder how many people get the wrong background when they check and have no idea that the person they're looking at isn't the same one who applied?
