About the Book


 
Often, we want to speak up, but we don’t, gripped by fear and the need to get along. The reality is, it’s hard to find our voice; and then one day we do.
Katy McQuaid, former deputy director of logistics in the CIA, brings her true-life stories of courage, faith, and adventure related to that journey. From the life-changing events in her first year of college to her remarkable career in the CIA, McQuaid shares that you don’t have to be loud to be strong.
She shares her challenges as a woman working in a male-dominated industry. She was inspired by good leaders who helped her succeed and go further than she thought possible.
 
After thirty-two years, McQuaid retired from the secretive and often dangerous world of intelligence gathering at the CIA, and found her voice through writing the Everybody Loves Grace series, winning two Nautilus Book Silver awards for Children’s Illustrated Fiction books.
Along with stories of strength through adversity, this book includes stories of leadership with humility.
Humble Yet Fierce will remind you that leadership is a way of life, that you don’t have to be overbearing to make yourself heard, and that you can laugh at yourself even in difficult times.
