In My Own Words

  1. What is your name?
    Melissa Hindermann
  2. A little about you
    New Outreach Coordinator and Event Director for Rochester Women Magazine. Mary Kay Sales Director for eight years. American Sign Language interpreting student. Writer. Dog mom. Wife. My hobbies include board games, reading, rock climbing, and music. My mission is to cultivate fun energy wherever I go. 🙂
  3. What does “creativity” mean to you?
    To me, creativity means expressing yourself in any way that brings you joy. Creativeness comes in all forms, not just the art form like music and painting that most people think of. Creativity can come in the way you speak by using colorful words or the way you solve problems at home or work by thinking outside the box.
  4. In what ways do you like to express your creativity?
    Growing up, art and music was important to me and still is. I’ve been playing guitar and piano since I was a teen. While art in the form of “arts and crafts” doesn’t play a huge role in my life like it used to, I now create art in the form of writing novels. I also am very creative in the way I bring fun ideas to life in my home and workspaces.
  5. Who/What inspires you to be creative?
    My inspiration for learning to play instruments comes from listening to acoustic music and loving the way it sounds so much that I want to create it myself.
  6. What is one of your favorite creative accomplishments?
    Some of my favorite creative accomplishments are when I host fun game/karaoke nights in my home where my friends and Mary Kay team can laugh so hard that they cry. I thrive from watching the people I love enjoy themselves because of an environment I creatively created for them to just relax and maybe get a little competitive. 🙂
