Hi, I'm Cheena
As a child I knew I was destined for something bigger. I knew I was here to have an impact and make the world a better place. My background hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows but it has been the driving force behind why I do what I do.
I grew up in a dysfunctional home, raised by two recovering addicts. Neither of my parents worked and we lived off Centrelink. We had very little money. The staple foods in my home growing up were 2 minute noodles, white bread, preservative filled cheese and coca-cola.
After so many hurdles and getting off track more times than I could count. My packaged-food-fuelled lifestyle only served me so long and at 20 I became sick. Naturally I went to my GP for answers, I was given a dose of antibiotics which amplified all of my symptons. It didn't matter what symptons I was presenting according to my Doctor I was fine.
I couldn't accept the outcome provided to me by my Doctor and this is when I started venturing into natural medicine and the healing powers of food and supplements. This time in my life was pivotal. I completely changed the way I ate, the products I had in my home and taught myself how to cook.
I had felt the best I had ever felt....and I knew I had to share it with others in some way. Deeto has been created to do just that.
I have different coloured eyes
I have blue eyes with a patch of hazel in my right eye, it's called heterochromia it's a genetic mutation. Only 1% of the population have.
I'm a one woman team
I run Deeto completely by myself and pack all orders out of my 1 bedroom apartment on the Sunshine Coast
I have ADHD and I'm ALWAY singing and dancing. I have background music going in my head 24/7 and it's my favourite things about being neurodiverse
Giving back is important to me
When I was 19, I started volunteering with the pyjama foundation visiting a 12 year old in foster care. 8 years later we still catch up once a week.
