Deeqa is 19 and currently a freshman at Normandale and choosing between a business or psych major. Her favorite things to do in her spare time are hanging out with friends and family, me-time, and watchingRick and Morty. She is also really interested in photography, painting, singing and designing clothes.
Deeqa was a Step-Up Intern and a Music and Food Intern at Redeemer for 5 years. She was introduced to Redeemer through the previous Youth Director, Angela Bonfiglio and has lived in the North community her entire life.
She started working as a barista at Venture North in August. She likes working at VN because of the people and environment and she feels that nothing bad ever happens when she’s there. Deeqa’s favorite thing that VN offers are their bike classes that teach kids how to ride/build/fix bikes. Deeqa also really enjoys the conversations that she has with customers and that, “everyone lives in the same community but also all have such different stories.”
Deeqa’s favorite drink is the raspberry iced tea with lemonade or any other kind of fruity drink. Her favorite bike is the green bike hanging up on the wall with the brown saddle seat.
This is who she is and we are grateful that she is here with us. She brings joy and smile to everyone that walks into the shop. So, stop by and say hi!
