Grateful Rachel’s life story is chronicled in her book “Bounce Back: Turning Trials Into Triumphs" and in it, she shares the powerful testimony of how she was able to overcome her personal life trials which are unlike any story you've heard before. From meeting her family for the first time aged 17 but then losing her father just seven months after the reunion, followed by a painful divorce and then dropping from a size 20 to size 12. Rachel still found a way to her victory and is now ready to show other women the way too. This book also has practical tips and advice on how women from all backgrounds can rise above the challenges in life. Chapters cover a series of issues including single parenting, forgiveness, emotional well-being and self-love.
“My passion is to encourage, motivate and empower women to enjoy life and live a life of significance no matter what you are going through or what you have been through,” Rachel says.
In 2012 Osinaike founded the Women Empowering Projects (WEP) because she wanted to create a safe space for respite for women where they felt safe to offload their burdens. Her passion for women’s empowerment has developed over the years; she is known to be a source of strength and support to women who face varying challenges in their lives. She has successfully organised various events to bring like-minded women together to encourage and support them at different levels.
