Former CIA agent Michele Rigby Assad spoke about her decade undercover serving as a directorate of operations in Iraq and other top-secret locations at the Correct Craft and Nautique factory in Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday.
Through her counterterrorism experience, Assad found her next mission after leaving the CIA — extending relief to persecuted Christians in Iraq.
“My life’s mission is to inspire others to find their place of purpose by following their passions, getting out of their comfort zones and doing hard things,” Assad said in a statement. “The opportunities that scare us the most are the places in which we discover who we really are and how we can best impact the world.”
“Our team was thrilled to have Michele visit with us today and share her incredible experiences,” said Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin. “Michele’s story of courage and faith was inspiring to our team and we were honored to have her spend time with us.”
