Johnson takes the time to reflect back on her past that has ultimately brought her to this moment. “There were a lot of moments, after I left my previous position, that I literally had to fight to keep my mind in a positive place. The truth of what happened to me, is that God was trying to make me better.”—Tiffini Gatlin
