Demeka Allen grew up in McKinney, Texas where she was born to the parents of Rev. David G. Bell, and Wilhelmenia H. Bell. Demeka graduated from McKinney High School. A place where she never felt like she fit in. After graduating high school, she went on to pursue a Bachelors in Mass Communications at Texas Woman’s University. While enrolled at the university, she began to realize that Texas Woman’s University was a place where she didn’t fit in either. Ultimately, she completed her degree with American Broadcasting School. Demeka interned for KKVI 89.9FM before landing a career in Healthcare; where she has been for the last 16 years. Because one degree is not enough, she plans to complete a degree in Nursing, where she will add BSN to the end of her name. Demeka is also the owner, and operator of Dee’s Hot Plates. A business where she creates made from scratch meals for those working overnights. Demeka is no stranger to the Fishbowl Radio Network. She began her relationship with the network back in August 2016, and produced relatable content weekly. Dee Nation became a popular show locally, and globally because of her ability to be funny, transparent, and relatable. However, in 2018 she took a sabbatical from the mic to focus more on other personal goals that had been on the “back burner” for some time. As a survivor of three forms of Leukemia; diagnosed at one time in 2019, and a post Bone Marrow Transplant recipient in 2020…Demeka wants to live in a world filled with genuine love, books that come bundled with cheesecake, and a force field around her that repels four loving; yet demanding, sticky-fingered children. When Demeka is not helping others, she likes running around barefoot, meditating, experiencing scenic views, listening to music, coloring, spending time with family, friends, and acquaintances She continues to put energy towards fulfilling her goals for publishing her book, branding her business, and fulfilling her life-long dream of one day establishing a home for the homeless. Although, lover of all things Healthcare, Demeka has found her way back to her first love. Despite all of life’s challenges, she continues to push through with grace, by faith, and the mantra, “I Can! I Will! I Did!”, given to her by a dear friend. The opportunity presented itself once again, and she decided to jump back in at Fishbowl Radio Network!
