Dr. Tiffany Purnell


S.A.S.H - Students Against Self-Hatred


This dual degree educator has a passion for youth and education. With seven years in the classroom as a second and third-grade teacher and now the principal for a primary school, Tiffany strongly believes the gift of knowledge is one of the most powerful gifts anyone can receive. Through her own matriculation in school, Purnell’s degrees include a Bachelor of Science in Political Science from Murray State University, Master of Art in Elementary Education from Union University, Education Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction from Liberty University, and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from Carson-Newman University. Tiffany used her collegiate experience wisely and is a proud Spring 08' initiate of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, and served as the active President of the Zeta Zeta chapter while at Murray State University. With an extensive background in numerous learning environments, let’s take a look at Ms. World Achievement’s journey to her success.

The crown and sash is not the only achievement Dr. Purnell received. This educated beauty queen was named Teacher of the year for Humboldt City School District in 2018, the Jefferson Award in 2019, as well as the Sterling Award in 2019. Recently, Tiffany was named Dr. World Productions Educator of the Year.

Her passion for youth extends beyond the classroom setting. As the founder of S.A.S.H.®, Students Against Self-Hatred, Dr. Tiffany Purnell is the face of a mentoring organization that teaches young girls the importance of confidence and how to love themselves. S.A.S.H.® has chapters all over America. Sadly, 75% of young girls, with low self-esteem, try to harm themselves, are bullied, are bullies, or are depressed. Dr. Purnell’s goal is to implement a S.A.S.H.® chapter in every state in America and communities in other countries. She is a champion for the empowerment of girls and women. Dr. Purnell empowers women by highlighting their accomplishments through her podcast, SASHversations, and her magazine, SASHversations Magazine. She is also the author of the E-book entitled, Finding Your Inner Queen: The 5-Day Confidence Boosting Challenge.
