Is it possible for someone really shy and quiet to become very outgoing through practice and being more social?
I'm tired of being afraid of talking to people. I want to... but I just hesitate.

yes they can. Myself, for example.
If you're naturally shy you can work on becoming more outgoing. Will you ever be extremely outgoing/social? No, can't go from one extreme to the other. You can get better relative to where you currently are, though.0

I've never watched a person go from shy to social, but I've seen completely crippling shyness go to simply not speaking unless she has something to say.
(Seriously, my best friend used to cry when she had to stand and talk in front of the class. She got sent to the principal's office multiple times for this.(Why, I was never quite sure.) Now, she has no problem speaking in front of people, she's just quiet most of the time.)0
