…core mission is to expose young women to individual development training and seminars to excel during their college transition.
Foundation For Fortitude, is a 501c3 non-profit organization, founded by Jacksonville native and mogul, Sherry Blue, with an operating head office in Jacksonville, whose core mission is to expose young women to individual development training and seminars to excel during their college transition. Sherry’s vision stems from her own personal triumphs, and her goal is provide guidance and mentoring to women to aide them in having the ultimate success story; and being the ultimate successful woman, like herself.
Sherry Blue experienced the trials of the college transition early on. While she understood the immense importance of education, without a mentor to push her to remain focused, she dropped out of college after two semesters. Fast forward, 12 years later, she went back to college and completed her undergraduate in Business Administration from Edward Waters College; and it was at the moment she realized that it is never too late. After years of working as a veteran for corporate America, Sherry realized that she had other dreams to chase; and one of them included spreading her knowledge on the benefits of education, and sharing her story to help shape young women’s futures. As a highly successful entrepreneur, Sherry Blue is a mogul in every sense of the word—owner of Make it Happen Bail Bonds, Inc., and Luxuree Limo based in Jacksonville, and has since expanded the operation into multiple locations. She continues to flourish in a previously male dominated industry, (noted as one of the top bail bonds women in Jacksonville).
…core mission is to … increase their awareness of … growth aspects to address the concept of the whole woman.
Foundation For Fortitude’s core mission is to expose young women to individual development training and seminars that would increase their awareness of financial and budgeting techniques, employment and college preparedness, leadership building opportunities, public service involvement and other internal growth aspects to address the concept of the whole woman. Foundation For Fortitude’s innovative mantra is to unite women and re-affirm them that they are capable of being strong, powerful, accomplished, and educated.
Reality TV star and style expert, Marlo Hampton aligns perfectly with the visions for Foundation of Fortitude. As an educated woman, successful entrepreneur, and founder of her own charity, Glam It Up! Marlo is dedicated to encourage young girls in the foster care system to excel beyond their current status to achieve success in all areas of their lives. The budding star will share her inspirational story at Foundation For Fortitude “Pure White Affair” on March 31st.
…ongoing goal of enriching the lives and minds of young women is a cause also near and dear to my heart. And what better way than for us to unite to uplift and push young women to become their better self.
