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. In April 2018, she founded the Invisible Mentors Academy offering online training courses and coaching.
Along with her many other endeavors, Ceitci has been featured as a guest on national and international radio and TV networks, such as Clear Channel, Daystar, TBN, CTN, and more. She has authored six books; an autobiography If You Have God You Have Everything, a devotional series called A Cup of Inspiration, her best seller Motivated by the Impossible: Recognizing Your Invisible Mentors which received three book awards and became a #1 Hot New Release on Amazon, and Exposed to Hope, a collection of true stories, poems and prayers for the abandoned children of Bulgaria.
