Our Guest: Demetria Buie
Demetria Buie is a 33-year-old mother of one. She grew up in a small town in Louisiana, at eighteen, Demetria moved to Richmond, Virginia, seeking a chance to better her life. Demetria has experienced a wide and harsh variety of hardships, having been at one time or another homeless, unforgiving, depressed, and suicidal. All along, she has had to cope with the realities of her extremely dysfunctional family. Mrs. Buie was a junior high drop-out, but this never stopped her—she always kept pushing on. At 23, she earned her GED and began attending John Tyler Community College, studying acting. All of this was accomplished in the midst of hurt caused by fake family and friends, resulting in a forced move into a group home. It was these trying circumstances that fueled her passion to write her first book, an Autobiography called Refuse To Lose.
