Strength through Sharing

Featured Iron Butterflies: Misty Gassaway

Misty Gassaway is an excellent student. But, if you measured her success by her GPA (2.67) or standardized tests, you’d miss out on meeting one of the most fascinating people in your life.

It took Misty almost 20 years to NOT allow herself to be defined by standardized tests in the seventh grade or by her college GPA. In this powerful story, Misty shares how she rebuilt her self-esteem and overcame her doubts and fears about being successful.

You’ll be glad you took time to read how this Iron Caterpillar flew through major setbacks, to become the beautiful Iron Butterfly she is today.
