My name, Melissa, means "honeybee" in Greek. When I was a little girl, my baby brother pronounced "Missy" as "Bee." So, my family also called me "Bee Girl." I also really like the saying about how, according to aerodynamics and the laws of physics, bumble bees shouldn't be able to fly. But, bees don't know they're not supposed to be able to fly, so they just go ahead and do it anyway.
So, the bee has kind of become my symbol. At one time, I even thought about getting a bee tattoo, but never really made up my mind to actually do so.
