Chavery traveled to South Africa with Ms. Ferebee as a member of the Got It Goin' On® Girls: Hip Hop Fitness Team in 2004.  She is currently a Captain in the United States Air Force.  "Thank you and congratulations, Ms. Ferebee, on being a phenomenal inspiration to all of us."

Teresa Lewis

Proud Mother of Jessica Artis * Former GIGO Girl


"Helping Jessica transition from young lady to adulthood has been critical for her and who she is today.  Jessica is one of the young leaders of tomorrow.  I thank Janice and GIGO, and I'm excited about GIGO going to the next phase."

Rene Gibbons

Grateful Mother of Ebony Jackson * Former GIGO Girl

"GIGO came at a time we really needed that empowerment and influence from girls, and, from Janice Ferebee.  It allowed her to use it as a place to vent, to talk, to cry, and to learn how to use that energy.  I want to thank Janice, and look forward to everything that will be done with GIGO International."

“I don’t think I ever honestly said thank you for being an inspiration in my life. Here I am at 32-years old, basically 16 years after being part of the Got It Goin’ On® Girls, realizing the true impact the program and you had on my life. Thank you, Ms. Ferebee!”

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.”

As Black & Brown girls face increased racism and discrimination, Janice Ferebee (my Alpha Kappa Alpha Soror) offers girls a timely, culturally competent 20th anniversary edition of her popular GOT IT GOIN’ ON-II personal development handbook. Her use of the GOT IT GOIN’ ON® GUARDIAN ANGELS is an imaginative way to help girls courageously navigate adolescence. As the mother of two grown daughters, I encourage all parents to purchase this effective empowerment tool today! It’s a MUST HAVE for every Black and Brown girl’s personal library as she evolves into womanhood.”
