Born and raised in Bulgaria, a former Communist country, Ceitci's story is one of tragedy to triumph and poverty to richness. Arriving to the United States at age 19 with $100 and 100 words of English, her ultimate passion and purpose was, and still is, helping 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, business and leadership development, Ceitci has become a worldwide-recognized motivational speaker, preacher and teacher. Since founding her non-profit, Ceitci Demirkova Ministries in 1996, 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 (Tri-Sela), as well as optimizing your full potential. Her heart's desire is to see the lives of people increase by understanding their values and discovering 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 countries, her organization provides daily food, educational supplies, school tuition, Christmas presents, and offers help as needs arise for children from 6 sponsorship programs and 3 orphanages in Bulgaria, Ghana and Uganda.
Since the beginning of 2011, Ceitci also became a project director and a certified facilitator for The Pacific Institute in Seattle, WA. With a qualified team of people, she works daily toward the realization of her passion to see her home country of Bulgaria thrive with new opportunities through leadership and development training.
Along with her many other endeavors, Ceitci is currently featured as a guest contributor on Clear Channel Communications, KTLK am1150, Nelson Radio and has also been a radio and TV show guest on other national and international media. She has authored an autobiography, a devotional series called A Cup of Inspiration, and her newest book Motivated by the Impossible: Recognizing Your Invisible Mentors.
