I am so proud of my organization, P.O.W.E.R., and P.O.W.E.R. Magazine which are filled with empowering and inspiring women. It is not easy trying to balance it all and women deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments. I have become a better person because of the professionals I have had the pleasure of interviewing, reading about and highlighting.
Each quarter, P.O.W.E.R. Magazine showcases biographies of celebrities and everyday hard working women who strive to do their best and make a difference. Through my Tonia’s Talk, I highlight common threads we share as well as the uniqueness that makes us who we are. I hope you enjoy reading Tonia’s Talk and each issue of our magazine.
