In the coming year, Tamiya will add Author and Motivational Speaker to her list of credits, as she prepares to release her debut book this summer (July 2019), entitled “From Fatal to Fierce.” The book chronicles her journey of survival from her near-death experience, which left her disabled and disfigured, to the fierce, successful woman she is today.
