Eleanor Mae Fondren (Holden) born was May 24, 1969, in
Chicago, Illinois. She is the youngest of eight children birth by
Nannie M. Holden (Sallis) and John W. Holden. Eleanor is a
first-generation college graduate and the youngest of eight
children. She has received the honor of becoming the first
sibling in her family to receive a bachelor’s degree.
Childhood and Adolescences were not easy for Eleanor, she
was required to grow up very fast. After her parents were
divorced, she would be soon kicked out of one of Chicago’s
top high schools indefinitely for her continuous gang
affiliation and unruly conduct. The perils of growing up in the
inner city of Chicago with minimal life skills and little
education her path would lead to drug addiction, gang affiliation, and senseless homicides of
established relationships, loss of rewarding opportunities, unstable employment, and
homelessness. After, many years of instability, she began to realize that the lifestyle choices and
bad decisions would only lead to two options: death or prison.
