Dr. Tawana Williams-ONE SHEET

Look what God has done through this woman Tawana Williams, she’s the most motivational person I know!”
-Les Brown, Author, World Renowned Speaker

The words ‘I can‘t’ are not an option for Tawana Williams! When you meet Tawana, she will not tell you about how she survived the trauma of gang rape. She will not tell you about her experience with abortion and the miraculous birth of her daughter. She will not tell you about how God delivered her from a ten-year struggle with crack and cocaine addictions. Tawana will simply tell you that, “if you decide to do something in your life, you can do it.” She knows this lesson because she lives it every day of her life. When you meet her, you’ll see why her life was full of challenges. She was born without arms and impaired use of her legs. This is why she likes to tell others that because of her relationship with God, she considers herself “UNarmed But Dangerous!”

Tawana was born in Wilson, North Carolina in 1963 without arms, due to the drug Thalidomide that was given to her mother during pregnancy. Her legacy is connected to President John F. Kennedy who intervened in this complicated situation as Tawana’s mother cried out for help. Months later, she was trained as a baby to use her feet as hands. She can do just about anything that someone with arms can do, even braid hair, type, text, and draw. She grew up in the Washington, DC area where she attended school, and in 1981 as a senior, she became addicted to crack cocaine because of peer pressure.  Her addiction lasted 10 years. In August of 1991, after being tired of her lifestyle, she cried out to a God that she didn’t know and asked for deliverance from her addictions. He answered instantly!Today, she captivates audiences with her power voice and ability to do what others might think are impossible. Tawana is the Author of seven books and is changing lives one person at a time. She’s making American History by being the first black Tha-li-do-mide baby in the United States that became a Certified Les Brown Platinum Speaker in 2004!
