I am so grateful for Fannie Battle for having this program for women like me to attend and get to know other moms that aspire to be successful. This program brings women together to inspire one another and to never give up. FEP has opened doors that may not have been possible if it was not because of their guidance and encouragement. I can finally say I feel achievement in my life and that is all thanks to FEP and Fannie Battle.” — Toya Jordan
