Terressa Dorsey aka FlyGirlDiva CEO & Founder of DIVA’s Lounge was born in Nuremberg, Germany; where her parents met and married in the Army. Terressa’s BIG personality was molded by the many different cultures she was able to experience from living in many different places. As a pastor's kid she was una ble to listen to secular music and grew up singing, dancing, and acting inchurch. The love that Terressa has for music from an early age, only made her more curious in her teenage years to turn on the radio and listen to what the church called ”worldly music.” Although Terressa was sheltered, her confidence and big personality made her stand out and concur the world as a leader and trendsetter.
