Way back on May 3, HuffPost Becoming Fearless and Toyota Corolla teamed up to announce Toyota Corolla's Most Fearless Tweet Contest, which ran through Friday, August 31, 2012. Nine finalists were featured on Becoming Fearless and will receive signed copies of Arianna Huffington's book, "On Becoming Fearless."

We would hereby like to congratulate our grand prize winner, Ms. Nicety. She and a guest will get to meet Arianna in person in Chicago! May her inspiring tweet -- and the inspiring quotes from all of the other courageous and insightful tweeters featured in this slideshow -- give you a little boost of bravery. Or maybe even a humongous one!
