Where is Demetria Lucas from? Demetria Lucas is from Prince George’s County, Maryland, though she now lives in Brooklyn and is famous for her association with that New York City borough. Given that Demetria Lucas initially made her name writing the blog A Belle In Brooklyn, most fans probably think she’s a born-and-raised New Yorker, but she didn’t settle there until after she graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a degree in English.

The question “where is Demetria Lucas from?” is one fans are sure to ask now that the Bravo reality show “Blood, Sweat and Heels” has become such a breakout hit. She series follows Lucas—a blogger-turned-life coach who’s been dubbed “the black Carrie Bradshaw”—and five other women as they balance their careers and relationships in the go-go world of New York City, and the show’s setting will likely confuse the issue further, leading folks to believe she’s a Brooklyn native.

Just because the answer to “where is Demetria Lucas from?” is Maryland, not Brooklyn, it doesn’t mean the multi-talented writer had some super easy suburban childhood. As she said in a piece for Clutch Magazine, the police in her hometown were notoriously racist, and prior to turning 22 and decamping to New York City, she was pulled over six times. While she confesses three of those stops were due to legitimate infractions, “he other three were clear cases of Driving While Black.”
