Ms. Tonia Williams

My name is Tonia Williams. I am a single woman of faith, love, and purpose. I am a published author 98.6 x's Two The Power of Relationships. I am a published journalist who does Spoken Word. My passion is for family by promoting Sister/Brotherhood in order to fortify unity and love. I also have a passion for the adult literacy because it's never too late to go back to school. I went back to school 23 years after I graduated highschool and now I have a Master's degree in English in Secondary Education. I love working with adolescents because I love how they think.

I believe that reading and writing are two ways of stretching the imagination and expressing feelings that can be revisited over and over. I also created a movement, 'If The Shoe Fits'. This movement is about having peace about moving forward doing what we're created to do by Faith.

I have 2 adult children and 4 grand children. I live in Philadelphia Pa. and I'm single awaiting my King. I love life and I love people. And more than anything, I love writing and celebrating people in every stage of their lives.
