  • Three Words that best describe me:

Happy ,Hopeful and Honest

  • Role Models:

My parents, I was adopted and when I look at how selfless and given they both have been, I cannot ask for more.

  • Saddest moment:

I lost both my parents in a fire incident in 1993. I remember that morning and I haven’t been able to speak about it ever since.

  • Mantra:

Live like you are dying, we only get to live once!

Toke looks so much like her adoptive parents, that its hard to believe that they are not her biological parents! Here’s a photograph of her and her adoptive parents:
