"I do not write alone. I have another job. I am an advisor for God. I help to uplift the downtrodden, the sick and the broken hearted. I help to motivate even those who are motivated and supposedly, the successful. As for example, in my book Daily Tonic, there is a form of upliftment for everyone," she said.
Todd said she is willing to help local citizens.
"Each time I visit my lovely island, I seem to read and hear only the negative and I know there is so much positive happening. I would like to give the people of my island the opportunity that I was given to share all the positives they have to offer.
I am ready to help motivate my fellow brothers and sisters in Trinidad and Tobago."
