What is the Break Free Conference About?
The Beginning of Something Great! Faith was introduced to Barbara George Johnson by a mutual friend in August 2014. We decided to met at Panera Bread just to get to know each other. Long story short, by the end of our meeting, we had had committed to each other to facilitate an empowerment Conference for women who lack the resources (financial and otherwise) to attend conferences that could uplift and inspire them.
