Ms. Namita Nayyar: You were selected by The New York Post as “One of the 50 Sexiest Single Latinas in New York City”. You have a career in the entertainment industry with being doing Radio Shows and as fashion and glamour model. Tell us something about this successful professional journey?
Ms. ToshaMakia: I originally started out singing, I may be stepping back into that but Radio was an opportunity that came while having an on air interview regarding my single. Back then I was in a very unhealthy relationship and I wanted to be closer to my daughter. During my interview the Program director thought I had a great personality and ask if I’d ever consider radio, I thought about it for a few months and later I took on the challenge of radio & fell in love with it! Being on tour & performing has blessed me with the opportunity of radio and radio has blessed me with the opportunity of inspiring and motivating other people. Uplifting other women and making people laugh by sharing my pain in a bad relationship, my opinions of the music industry, talent, gossip, and celebrities.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You are leading media personality, model and radio show host. How you manage such a remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle?
Ms. ToshaMakia: It’s not easy but I love every moment if it. I have a strict schedule & on my down days I’m sure to handle all the extras. I remember not being as busy after my back surgery so I promised myself once I was able to walk I’d never complain. I’m a mother, a role model, a Radio/TV personality, a trainer, and a life Coach. I love my busy schedule and I love the example I am for my family, friends, and fans.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you may wish to share?
Ms. ToshaMakia: I do a lot of heavy lifting. Due to my back surgery I started off building around my back area. I always thought cardio was running but I’ve learned lifting does that as well. In my year transformation I can count on one hand how many times I ran. I feel stronger and unstoppable, my transformation has blessed me in many different ways.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Ms. ToshaMakia: I look at food differently now, I don’t allow my tongue to get its way anymore lol. I eat fish, chicken, veggies, unsalted nuts, and different fruits. I don’t fry my food anymore; I steam, bake, or broil. Adjusting my diet to eat clean is a big part of my transformation. Being Puerto Rican and being in a household that eats rice, beans and all sorts of yummy Spanish food, it definitely was a huge change for me but I love the results much more than food.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly what you do to your hair to make them look so stunning?
Ms. ToshaMakia: Thank you. I’ve always used toothpaste to clean my face to be quite honest. Not only do I love avocados with my food, I love to condition my hair with it as well. Coconut oil is another favorite for my hair and skin. In the hot summer months I keep conditioner in my hair on curly days. For my skin I love having warm water with lemon and coconut oil on my skin after showers. I see the difference in my skin and it helps create a beautiful glow.
