About Dré Cleveland


Dré Cleveland, a Brooklyn NY native, went from being painfully shy and insecure to being a literal force of nature on the stage as a transformational speaker, and life coach.  Her ambition was great from an early age, and she felt in her heart that she was destined for big things.  However, her fear of who she really was held her back from completely expressing her true nature and what she is here on this planet to accomplish.


Overcoming Obstacles


Dré spent most of her life, hiding behind her shy demeanor, and yet she still managed to find herself in front of people, performing on stage as an actress, poet, and dancer in numerous companies during and after college, starting a couple of businesses, mentoring young men and women, and beginning to empower people around her to understand their personal power before she was even 25 years old. From there the path was set. 


Even as a child, Dré always seemed to be naturally aware of how universal laws worked, and had no problem manifesting "the good things in life."  However, it was during her late teens and early 20’s that life began to give her the lessons she needed to really hone that awareness.  Enduring toxic relationships, sexual assault, financial difficulties, and simply going through the valleys of life, caused Dré to tap into those very powerful principles in a way that has empowered her to realize that she is the true creator of ALL of her life's experiences...and so is every single other person on the planet.

That realization set a fire under her, and thus began Dré’s life-long mission to throw "shy" out the window, to share her knowledge of universal law, her intutive gifts, and her own life experience in order to transform souls and give people the tools - those very same principles - that they need to create the lives they want to live instead of the ones they are living by default.
