Who is Mia Desha
Mia D. Ogburn, C.E.O. of Mia Desha & Co. is in the windy city on a mission
to help change the climate of this Nation by creating unique and creative
ways to shed light on the many silenced issues of our Nation. This Passion stems from a
childhood and early adulthood exposed to the arts and volunteer work in many ministries and
non profit organizations. At a young age her talent was evident and shown to be promising which
led her to land her first major movie role at the tender age of 9. The movie was entitled “There
Are No Children Here” starring Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou.
Since then, she has acted in numerous local plays such as “Miss Independent”, “Loves
Not Here Anymore”, “The Church Program”, “A Family That Prays”, “One Size Don’t Fit All”,
“Seeking For A Mate: Trimester” and “Train to Broadway”. She has also produced, directed
the following stage plays: “Behind Closed Doors”, “The Journey of Purpose…From Africa to
America”, “The Generational Curse”, “He Is Risen…The Wilderness, The Garden, The Cross”,
“Silent Screams Unveiled”, and “Behind Closed Doors... Exposed”.
As a God-fearing woman, she felt compelled to use her gift for the
Arts to change lives around her and she continues to expand her creative reach daily.
Mia started pursuing her purpose under the name of Xtreme XpressionZ Dance Company
which evolved to Mia Productions and is now Mia Desha & Co. Mia Desha & Co. has allowed
Mia to expand her reach pass the stage with endless possibilities of reaching souls for the
Mia Desha & Co. mantra is: Mia Desha & Co. will produce
creative and unique forms of expression to expose the deliberately silenced issues of our
Nation while igniting a divine movement of change, freedom, and wholeness by exposing the
Silent Killers that cause unrealistic identities and expectations.

has worked in a number of youth ministries and non for profit organizations implementing this
vision regardless of the platform. Mia is currently using her training and experience in the Arts and Mental Health
