Therese Wright, the second daughter born to Tony and Marva Wright of Belize City, BELIZE has embraced a life of community service since a young age. At the age of 16, she formed her dance group for girls called “Crème De La Crème”. In high school, she received an award in Leadership from Nazarene High School, and was a Civil Servant of the Government of Belize where she worked at the Supreme Court from 1991 to 1997.
In 1997, Therese was awarded a full academic scholarship from Spalding University in Louisville, Kentucky. While at Spalding University, she was a member of the International Students Association and participated in several community activities in Jefferson County. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and has since obtained a Master of Science Degree from the University of Cincinnati.
Therese returned to in Belize in 2004, but the familial, social, and political atmosphere in Belize had changed and found herself back in Kentucky. Only this time, she came to Lexington believing there was a greater purpose for her life. Therese set out to be a part of a church family, and in 2008 she joined Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church , where she began to faithfully serve the Lord and was the Director of the Women’s Ministry.
In 2010, Therese received the vision for SISTERS ROAD TO FREEDOM, INC., a support and empowerment non-profit organization for women and teen girls, where she currently serves as the Director. In 2014, Therese was called into the ministry, and she has been preaching, teaching and serving at Royal Priesthood Ministries of Lexington, Inc. (formerly Omega Harvest Ministries). Therese ministers and teaches at various churches and evangelizes in Belize through her mission efforts. She has been assisting organizations throughout the State of Kentucky with various programs, including the Molding of Generation Divas and Molding of Generation Z.
Therese also serves the community through inspirational speaking, teaching and writing. She is a member of the Lexington-Herald Leader’s Panel of Faith and contributes to the “Question of Faith” segment of the newspaper. She is an avid blogger/writer and speaker who lets women know that their futures are not defined by their pasts, and that God does want to use women who have a past.
Therese Wright is the proud mother of two children, Sheena and Ques.
