CEE CEE’S BIO
Cee Cee Michaela is the founder of Zuleana Weight Loss and Nutrition. She is a TV actress, Broadway performer, singer, songwriter, author, entrepreneur, mentor, motivational speaker, historian, nutrition and weight loss coach, researcher, educator, and preserver of the African-American experience within the fabric of America’s history. She is one of, if not “the only” African-American and female medicine hunters in the United States. The first half of her life was dedicated to the entertainment field and the study of natural medicine. Cee Cee has decided to dedicate the rest of her life to researching, educating, publishing, distributing, and performing oratorical presentations of the rich narratives of our African-American historical legends. She believes understanding the plight of hundreds of Black hidden figures of history will expand our perspective, subconsciously heal our personal and cultural esteem, and enrich our connection to one another.
Cee Cee Michaela was born in Hickory, North Carolina and was raised by her single mother who worked three jobs and was very intentional about grooming all four of her girls for greatness. Cee Cee’s absence of her father cultivated an even deeper respect for her mother and a personal desire to greatly succeed. Cee Cee started reading at three and 1/2 years old. She starred in her first movie at the age of nine. By the time she was twelve, she was singing in four octaves and four languages.

She is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory of Music in which her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theater was FedExed to her stage door as she had already landed on Broadway before she completed her last two months of college.
