" What a wonderful tool to help young [African American] females grow spiritually and emotionally. This is information that should be part of any curricula addressing life issues for young people.”
- Jada Pinkett Smith * Actress & Youth Advocate
(Referring to GOT IT GOIN' ON-II)
“Janice Ferebee’s Got It Goin’ On: An Image Awareness Guide for Young Ladies, is an empowering 55-page guide for the teen and preteen set – part workbook, part motivational tool.”
- Essence Magazine, August 1996
“Janice deserves credit for taking on the subjects many adults are most squeamish about confronting. Drug use, teen violence, gangs, sex and sexually transmitted diseases, are just some of the touchy subjects that are discussed as easily as the golden rule, fitness, body image, grooming, and table manners. Readers will be grateful to Janice Ferebee for giving adults the courage and the tools to go out and help our girls.”
• The Honorable Eleanor Holmes Norton, Congresswoman, D-District of Columbia (excerpt from the foreword of GIGO-II Facilitators’ Guide)
"Janice addresses today's social issues facing women & girls of color, with integrity, humanity, humor (when appropriate), and passion. Her lived experiences make her more than a valuable "go-to" expert. She is a LIVING TESTIMONY!"
- Overheard at a Presentation
