There are no better words to describe Toke Makinwa, than this short poem by Daveswordofwisdom.com which says,
‘A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow just as abundantly as her laughter. A strong woman is both soft and powerful. She is both practical and spiritual. A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world.’
Toke Makinwa is no doubt a strong woman who was born on the 3rd of November 1984. Working so hard on her path of passion, today, she is a radio personality, television host, and vlogger. No doubt has she turned heads with her stunning looks, pretty smile and graceful fashion sense.
Behind those smiles was a woman in great pain. Toke Makinwa showed the world that no matter what the circumstances were, she won’t break, she won’t give in, she won’t show weakness which is indeed, the essence of womanhood (strong, powerful, graceful, beautiful and divine).
The launch of her book got the world talking! When the world expected her to express the rage she felt from the break of her marriage on social media, unstoppable Toke Makinwa took to becoming an author, expressing the ups and downs, the highs and lows, the tears and fears, the pain and gain, and the successes and triumphs that followed suit, all in her book titled ‘On Becoming’.
Today, we celebrate her strength and her gracefulness. She has enlightened the understanding of women all over the world to turn their challenges into successes. To never back down and to never give up. To use their stories to empower others. As touching lives is one of her goals.
Indeed, Toke Makinwa is a both practical and spiritual. She is a rare gift to this world. Accelerate celebrates you today. You are our Accelerate Wednesday Woman today and always!
