Question about Japanese

What does 本人なり mean?


Hello, I would like to ask the grammar of the phrase 本人なり in this sentence. I thought the meaning of this sentence is "after discussion, we realize that the candidate has more interest in A postion more than B position, then we decided to reconsider about letting her work in our company".

However, I could not understand why there is なり after 本人 and I do not know if this will affect the meaning of the whole sentence.

I checked it on google and just found the phrase 自分なりに, which means like "within my ability (?)" and I do not think that it is relevant.

Please kindly help me explain about this.

Thank you in advance.
