A prolific speaker, this Ohio State University attendee proves that delayed destinies are “not really” derailed, as her journey to graduate summa cum laude took over 20 years to manifest. Through every trial and tribulation, she leaned on her mantra: “When life knocks you down, get back up. Don’t sit on your fabulous. Celebrate you and the God in you.” Words this goal-getter lives by as she tours the country armed with messages of restoration, such as “Life Beyond Bipolar,” “From Fearful to Fabulous,” “Celebrating the God in You” and “Faith It – You’re Fabulous!” Faye’s faith in herself has led to a long list of accomplishments including graduating from York College/CUNY summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, co-authoring #1 Amazon bestselling book, Open Your G.I.F.T.S., presented by Kim Coles, and penning several eBooks and articles featured in Black Enterprise and Black Expressions Magazine. She has also received a variety of awards and recognitions including the National Action Network’s Certificate of Appreciation, a citation for Outstanding Service to the Community and State from New York State Senator Leroy Comrie, a Certificate of Award from Letitia James, Public Advocate, and has been highlighted as an honoree at the Celebration of Southeast Queens Authors. In addition, Faye has appeared as a featured guest on Karen Taylor Bass’s BlogTalk radio show and Toya Beasley’s 103.9FM NY Inspire You show and as a panelist for the Faith Love & You (FLY) Women's Empowerment Summit. A mental breakdown at age 18 pushed Faye into her purpose. Rather than take this as the “knock-down, stay-down” punch it could have been, she took this as a blessing, empowering herself to teach others how to shine in the face of adversity.
