About The Founder
Andrea Brown, affectionately called “Lady D”, is the founder and CEO of Destined Divine Divas, Inc., a mentoring program that seeks to edify, encourage, and empower young ladies by helping them to see their self-worth and value.
A native of Monroe, Louisiana and graduate of Ouachita Parish High School, Andrea shares her passion of inspiring others as a minister, motivational speaker, and entrepreneur. She is the proud mother of the talented Isiah Emanuel Brown who attends Ouachita Parish High School. Lady D accepted her calling into ministry in 2012 and preached her first sermon in August of 2013.
She continued her educational journey at Louisiana Delta Community College where she received her Associates degree in Business and Technology in 2014. Currently, Andrea is employed in the Admissions Department at Louisiana Delta Community College while pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Social Work at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
Inspired by her own future aspirations, Andrea believes in planting seeds and birthing destiny in others. Her passion to invest in the lives of young women led to her creation of Destined Divine DIVAs in 2014. While attentively listening to the lyrics of Tupac Shakur’s song “Brenda’s Got a Baby”, Andrea realized her ministry was to positively impact and enrich the lives of young girls in her community. Her personal mission and passion was to prevent another young girl from becoming a “Brenda”.
