On the popular TV Series “Power Rangers”, Nakia Burrise, as Tanya Sloan, called on the power of the Zeo Crystal and Turbo to become the Yellow Ranger to fight the forces of evil.

In real life, the actress, producer and educator calls on the power of Jesus Christ and is using that relationship to inspire others to do the same.

Burrise is an avid Christian and active in her church and Bible-study classes. Together with her friend and partner, Kathy Hernandez, they developed a line of clothing to help people find their way to Jesus Christ.

“It’s called ‘Eternally His Design’ [EHD] and our mission is to inspire, uplift and to have people, [Christians and non-Christians], think about their eternity,” said Burrise.

“A lot of people live for today and don’t think about their eternity—and eternity is forever.”

“I immediately said that I would be interested,” said Hernandez. “So that’s how it got started.

“We’re basically putting ideas on a shirt that are on our hearts. Our main emphasis is the message, what we want to convey to [people] and have them think about [their eternity].”


EHD manages to combine the casually appealing with the spirit saving power of faith and hope. The clothing line is for men, women and children and features an assortment of t-shirts and hats.

“We’re hoping that some of the words on our shirts will encourage people to think about their eternity as well as knowing that God loves all people, regardless of anything,” said Burrise.

In addition to acting, Burrise has been a substitute teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District. She also founded the non-profit corporation, A Day In The Life program, where elementary kids are introduced to different occupations, educational field trips and receive positive reinforcement.
