Radio is probably the reason why most people know me. Starting at Howard University, radio has been my life for over 16 years. For the last 7 years, I've been the lead host of the morning show on Power 99.1 called the Just me Reka Show.
Being a woman in radio, with my name stamped so heavily on a radio show, is kind of a big deal. Because unfortunately, you won't find many women leading morning shows when it comes to radio.
Now, let's add life coaching and motivational speaking to my title. I’m on a mission to be a light for women; to encourage; to be a positive example; to share my story, and to show my strength despite my weaknesses; to allow God to use me. I began to share my trials and tribulations about my journey in life in 2017. The shame I had about my abusive ex and the embarrassment that I had about the "$10,000 boyfriend" I put aside to encourage women. I became vulnerable. What I have found is that there is always someone who has gone through what you’ve gone through and if you know that, you will feel less alone in this world. Loneliness is really about lack of connection and inspiration. The more I share my story the more I see that I can be a bridge to that connection!
I've been well received in the Tri-Cities (WA) community and I have won multiple “People’s choice awards” and recently I won “Influencer of the year” by the Tri-Cities Creatives community. In March I will be honored as a
"Woman of Distinction" by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Washington & Northern Idaho!
Volunteering and being present in my community, especially at the Virgie Robinson Elementary school in Pasco is very important to me. Fun fact:
Virgie Robinson was my grandmother. Yes, there is an elementary school in Pasco named after my Dad’s mom.
You will often hear me say that, 'singleness is not a punishment', and honestly, it can be your greatest asset! I truly believe this, and I want all women to know that you are enough, you are worthy and you have a purpose regardless of your relationship status. All women should know that self-awareness is your superpower and the key to true happiness. I'm happy to be a guide for women in helping them connect the dots to finding out who they really are and creating the life they want. It's about your goals, getting them on paper and putting action to them to create your best life!
Sometimes you need a coach and/or a motivational speaker for that. Hi, I'm Reka, your coach and motivational speaker!
