In episode 6, we talk to Denetria Moore. Denetria is the Founder and Executive Director of Girl Talk, Inc. We talk with Denetria about her story and why she started Girl Talk, Inc.
Denetria D. Moore
Founder / Executive Director, Girl Talk, Inc.
Denetria or “Mrs. Dee Dee” as she is affectionately known as to the girls, is the founder and Executive Director of Girl Talk, Inc. She is the wife of Kenneth Moore, a Worship Leader at Cokesbury Church, the mother of a beautiful daughter, Tailynn and son, Zion, who is in Heaven. She is a native of Memphis, TN and a 2007 graduate of the University of Tennessee with a B. A. in Sociology. Denetria founded GIRL TALK in the living room of her East Knoxville apartment in 2006.
With a burden to prevent teens from making the same mistakes she herself made as a young woman, Denetria began mentoring girls and within a short time GIRL TALK was born. Becoming a single mother at 19, Denetria’s theory is that “if I can teach girls to love themselves and not seek validation from a guy, I can prevent her from going down the road that I went down.”
Her vision for the organization is to see young women excel beyond their dreams and to increase the self-worth of young ladies so that they can reach their full potential in life and be the best that they can be.
