“Excuses don’t hide, they just reveal who you really are.”
“The Hope Coach”-Tawana Williams Speaker Reel
“The Hope Coach”-Tawana Williams is “UNarmed But Dangerous!”
The Early Years:
Tawana was born in Wilson, North Carolina without arms and impaired use of her legs due to the drug Thalidomide that was given to her mother during pregnancy. Tawana’s mother loved her child so much and didn’t know how to care for her, so she started contacting Social Services and The Department of Human Resources. After weeks with no response, she sat down and wrote a letter to President John F. Kennedy about Tawana’s situation and asked for his help. A few weeks later he responded and intervened!
At 11-1/2 months old, Tawana was taken to Duke Cerebral Palsy Hospital to be trained (long term) to use her feet as if they were her hands. At the age of 4-1/2 years old, she moved to Washington, DC with her mother and three sisters. Each summer Tawana and her 3 sisters went to Grandma Rogers house. Tawana’s mom knew that her mother was the families connection to God and she made sure that her girls would have that same opportunity. Her Aunts, Uncles and other family members all protected Tawana’s well being throughout her life.
Tawana’s Grandma Rogers who was the matriarch of the family, made sure that Tawana was taken care of, even though she lived miles away in North Carolina; that was her baby and she prayed, spoke life and watched over her until she passed in 1999.
As a teenager Tawana loved participating in local talent shows as a singer. She was always a happy and feisty child, she was the light of the party. Grandma Rogers told Tawana as a child “I knew you would do something with your mouth/voice because you talk all the time and you talk too much.”
In 1996, Tawana began her life as a Motivational Speaker giving Hope, Help & Inspiration across the country!
Tawana learned how to adapt in any situation, she’s a self sufficient and independent sister on the move. She learned to master what she had early in life! Tawana writes, types and irons with her feet. As a teenager, her sisters taught her how to sweep using her chin and shoulders.
Wow, she’s amazing…”All Things Are Possible To Them That Believe!”
On December 25, 1991 Tawana married her childhood sweetheart ‘Toby’ and they vowed to love each other for the rest of their lives! They inspire couples around the world with their unconditional love for each other!

Tawana Williams-As Seen On:
Tawana, I just wanted you to know that you really inspired our hearts when you came to Greater Wynns Grove Baptist Church. You touched my family’s heart even my 17 year old son (you stepped all on his toes!) Please stay encouraged and we will continue praying for you and your family. Your spiritual family, The Thompsons’
Ms. Williams, I just wanted to stop by and say I am really inspired and you are an inspiration to me. I was watching Judge Hatchett and you were on the show and it really touched my heart. I am a 29-year-old quadriplegic, I was not born this way. And I often find it hard to deal with. But every time I get down, something or someone always come across that makes me thankful for just being alive. I think it is amazing the things that you do for yourself.
