Jia Jiang to speak about overcoming rejection

CONTACT: Andrea Miller, 907-474-5942, acmiller3

Author and speaker Jia Jiang will present a talk about overcoming rejection on Tuesday, April 28, at 7 p.m. in Schaible Auditorium at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. A book signing will follow the talk.

Jiang’s newly published book and talk are titled “Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible, One Rejection at a Time.”

After several years in the corporate world, Jiang took a life-altering risk and stepped into the unknown world of entrepreneurship, which resulted in everyone’s biggest fear — rejection. To conquer the fear of rejection, Jiang embarked on a personal quest and started a blog to face 100 Days of Rejection. When he sought rejection, he discovered a world where people are much kinder than we imagine, and where rejection can be much less painful than we believe. Hear Jiang’s story firsthand and learn how the fear of rejection can be more destructive than rejection itself.

The talk will also be available to view via live stream at

In addition to the signing after his lecture, Jiang will host a book signing on Wednesday, April 29, at 5 p.m. at Barnes & Noble.

The events are sponsored by the UAF Northern Leadership Center, Students Offering Leadership Development and the Leadership, Involvement and Volunteer Experience office.
