We’ve had an unprecedented TIE!! Due to an unfortunate glitch with the poll, it did not close at midnight as programmed, and votes were still coming in this morning. But according to the poll logs at 12:00 AM, we have two winners, who each scored 59 votes.
Congratulations to Juanima Hiatt for her incredible story which will help others and give hope to those who face PTSD. Juanima’s goal is, “to shatter the stigma of PTSD and abuse, and inspire others to break the silence.” She has a memoir out which I am reading and recommend called: The Invisible Storm.
Congratulations also go to Belinda, an expat from South Africa who moved to the U.S., in 2001. She shows us how change can also present us with opportunities in life. Please check out her book, Out of Sync, I am enjoying reading about Belinda’s life in the U.S after moving over from South Africa.
Mary Herslet has an uplifting story about her life, and her words of wisdom can help all of us. “Take advantage of your opportunities, follow your passions, and never stop learning.“ We are all encouraging her to finish her memoir.
3rd place goes to Sherrey Meyer. Sherrey’s story showed us how she overcame the cruel threats of her mother’s psychological games and threats of suicide.
4th place goes to Bob Lowry who inspired us with his remarkable story of how perseverance and staying “Gutsy” paid off as far as leaving the corporate world and finding his own job.
Do you have a “My Gutsy Story” you’d like to share?
