As a Tennessee State Tiger, I live by the motto, “Think. Work. Serve.” As an organizational leader, I must think and innovate ideas to work and serve the people within churches, ministries, organizations, and initiatives in a way that meets them where they are. Therefore, it is imperative to know the needs of the people. When a person is changed from the inside-out, impact is made by catering to their thoughts of doubt, self-hatred, ignorance, and desires for purpose and fulfillment.
After completing her degree, Demetria plans to attend seminary where she can further her life and career as both a theologian and agent of change. Below are some of her passions as well as her ministry at work.
