Hi Toronto it's your girl JA Nursing here,  with some exciting news.  For his first time in Canada, African-American author Derrick Jaxn aka the Self-Love Ambassador alongside Toronto’s own Makini Smith are joining forces to bring you an evening of intimate and intellectual conversations in "The Self Love Chronicles" (#TheSelfLoveChronicles) moderated by Karlyn Percil-Mercieca, Founder of the SisterTalk Group on Thursday, October 15th, 2015 at 7:00pm inside the Revival (783 College St., Toronto).

Derrick Jaxn is a celebrity lifestyle blogger and public speaker. He was recently featured on CNN, speaking on race relations and police brutality. He is a poet and author of top selling relationship books; A Cheating Man’s Heart, A Cheating Man’s Heart 2, and his most recent poetry book I Still Want It. Derrick’s mission is to restore people’s faith in love around the world. “His viral social media quotes and books are so empowering and uplifting that it was a no brainer to bring him out to our city to speak in an effort to renew people’s views on love, relationships, and well-being,” says Erika Enyolu, Founder of PR Diva Communications. With over 400,000 plus social media followers growing by the day, he is indeed getting his messages out loud and clear.

Makini Smith is a serial-entrepreneur, community activist, and author of her first published book A Walk In My Stilettos, on how she overcame adversity with determination and grace. She has been featured on numerous platforms for her wealth of knowledge and life experiences including: teen motherhood, divorce, relationships, single parenthood, and more. “Her story is so motivating and empowering to people out there who have been or are going through obstacles and challenges and how they can learn to break free from them. Her charisma, strength, and success through all the heartache she has been through highlighted in her book, is the main reason why we had to have her speak at our event alongside Derrick,” says Erika Enyolu. Makini was voted as 1 of 100 Black Women to Watch in Canada for 2015 and was recently honoured by Black Canadian Awards on their national wall of role models.

Karlyn Percil-Mercieca is the host and moderator of this event and is the Founder of the SisterTalk Group a women’s leadership network, where members have “Elephant Story” conversations on life, love, relationships & career. Through transformational workshops, meet-ups & SisterTalk Circles, members have conversations that elevate, celebrate and support women in life, love & their ambition. SisterTalk Group has been featured on Oprah's Lifesclass 3 times.

“With all the violence we see in the media and everyday lifestyle challenges that have either affected us or someone we love we need events like this to help build our faith, empower us and inspire us to be the best we can be for ourselves and others. As October is also observed nationally as Domestic Violence Awareness month this event really couldn’t have come at a better time,” says Erika Enyolu.

The Self Love Chronicles is being generously sponsored by Grace Foods Canada who is providing tropical treats, coupons, and recipes for the event’s swag bags. Caribbean Vibrations TV is the event’s media sponsor that will be advertising and covering this event on their television series which can be viewed on the OMNI 1 channel – Cable 4.

Part of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Women's Multicultural Resource & Counseling Centre of Durham (WMRCC) dedicated to providing specialized counseling and support to women of all ages, youth and children from diverse backgrounds, to eradicate violence, to re-build their lives, and to enable them to become contributing members of the society.
