I learned about FAME from the FAME daily nuggets which I used to see every day on an old friend WhatsApp status. The nuggets motivated me to join FAME.

Ever since then I have never regretted joining the Fashioned and Made for Excellence Foundation.

FAME has given me everything I needed to become the best version of myself in all ramifications of life; socially, academically and spiritually. I am so grateful to be a part of this family.
