AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR | INTERNATIONAL SPEAKER | CEO | PERSONAL COACH
Born and raised in Bulgaria, a former Communist country, Ceitci's story is one of tragedy to triumph and poverty to riches. Arriving to the United States at age nineteen with $100 and 100 words of English, her ultimate passion and purpose was, and still is, to help people. Her personal stories of overcoming life's challenges and not stopping in the face of betrayal, discouragement or sickness are intertwined with her messages of hope, truth, love and purpose.
After extensive studies in cross-cultural communications, public speaking, and business and leadership development, Ceitci has become recognized worldwide as a motivational speaker, preacher and teacher. Since 1995, when she founded her non-profit, Ceitci Demirkova Ministries, she has developed innovative training seminars on a wide-range of topics: non-profit/profit business growth, creative fundraising methods, personal health and nutrition education, and individual discovery and fulfillment of all the potential God gives each of us. Her heart's desire is to see growth in the lives of people by teaching them to understand their value and discover their God-given skills and destiny.
In 2008, Ceitci incorporated into her ministry an additional charitable organization called Changing a Generation. By networking with pre-established foundations in various countries, her organization provides food, educational supplies, school tuition, and Christmas presents; and offers Biblically-based curriculum to children of all ages who live in impoverished environments. Currently the organization works on a weekly basis in four regions of Bulgaria (Sofia, Veliko Turnovo, Ruse and Burgas). Their secondary focus of outreach and educational development is in Uganda and Ghana.
Ceitci is certified with PeopleBest, Inc. as a Level 1 DNA Cultural Assessment Trainer. Since 2012 she has worked with individuals, church organizations, businesses and government groups by helping them to create sustainable results in their personal and professional lives.
