A couple of weeks ago I ran into a student in the cafeteria (it’s where I get some of my best outreach work on). She thanked me for coming to guest lecture for the Sign Language Interpretation program. What she said next really struck me.
"I remember your shoes, they made you seem trustworthy. I mean, sure I am always impressed by people who know their stuff and bring genius levels of knowledge - but the next thing I consider is always the shoes. I just don’t trust people with shoes I cannot relate to.”
The shoes in question? My trusty gray and sparkly-pink Chuck Taylors. Same ones that used to be in my LW Admin profile photo (seen here). 
Remember that you don’t always need to wear beat up sparkly shoes - but you should wear shoes that are a reflection of your own authentic self.
