HEY - I'M FELECEIA
I unashamedly sing songs in the shower and on stages, I've raised a little girl mostly solo for the past nine years, and I'm becoming more obsessed with my "thunder thighs" on the daily.
FELECEIA B. BENTON, is a passionate lover of God, His people and of helping people think beyond their comfort zones.
"Everything changes when you change your mind."
As a single momma of a little girl born with Down syndrome, Feleceia has learned to believe in the power of perspective. Beauty can be formed from the most difficult situations.
After an unsuccessful four-month search for looking for a job, she created her own.
Founded in 2012, the Zoe Communications Agency is a creative content and brand management company that builds strategic marketing solutions for cities, communities and businesses like the City of DeSoto, the City of Hutchins, RISE Clothing, and the Midlothian Chamber of Commerce.
Her love for writing inspired her to not only author her first book, Lessons from Five Fingers: 21 Life Lessons from the Book of Zoe, but also led her to found Elisia Magazine, a quarterly digital lifestyle magazine that celebrates the diverse voice of the American woman.
An accomplished award-winning singer and performer, Feleceia has performed on almost every professional theater stage in Dallas/Ft. Worth and has been featured in publications like the Dallas Morning News, Culture Map Dallas, and most recently on the cover of Thrive Magazine with her little girl, Zoe.
As a single mother of an amputee born with Down Syndrome, Feleceia still finds the time to record a weekly podcast, LifeChat Radio, where she and her co-host talk music, business, spirituality and all things life.
Ms. Benton holds two degrees from Texas Christian University, a graduate of the Leadership Southwest program, and is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Public Leadership at UNT-Dallas. She also sits on a number of non-profit boards in Southern Dallas County.
Feleceia is ultimately passionate about spreading her inspirational message of creativity, spirituality and empowerment through faith, hope and action.
