"I wish every girl in my country could have, hold, read, write in, interact with, learn from, and grow up with a Got It Goin’On-ll handbook that is in the language that she speaks. While being respectful of the particular community each girl is a part of, her Got It Goin’On-ll handbook would give her what she needs to be empowered. There is no magic wand that can make that happen. But what each of us grown-ups can do is to make sure that girls we know and love, have this modernized edition of Janice Ferebee’s book. It is a book that can serve as a flight manual to help girls soar to the height of their possibilities."

I AM ENOUGH!
“I met Janice at SEVENTEEN Magazine | at the time she was the magazine’s first African American Models Editor, and I was their first Latina intern. Janice has been working for over 40 years since then to help Black & Brown girls deal with our trauma, our issues, and our circumstances, to find our voices and our deserved place and seat at any table and in any career.”
