Beauty Revived – Destiny Peterson
Encouraging / Compassionate / Humble
A Light Shining in the Dark
Offering Destiny a Beauty Revived session was really a no brainer. The person she is inside and out is the definition of what this program is about. From the first email to the last, the praise that came in for her could not be stronger and it was nothing short of encouraging.
Destiny is a senior at Tomball High School in Texas, but that is definitely not what defines her. She is so much more than that. The past four years, rather than sleeping in and hanging out with friends during the summer, she has sacrificed, raised money, and gone on missions to third world countries to teach and give back to those in need of true help. Whether she is teaching close to eighty children or spending time with one, she is happy.
When back home, she also spends time with kids in under-privileged communities around the Houston area to spread hope. During her time, she teaches and plays with them, sings and dances, allowing them to just be kids and have fun. She understands that they don’t have much, so with an open heart, she gives what she can in time, attention and compassion. Destiny was described as “a light shining in the dark,” by her aunt, Gina.
In addition to her community service, Destiny was elected as Chaplain Social Officer of Charms (the Drill Team of Tomball High School). The duties of this position include helping, uplifting, and praying for the team. She is the shoulder for the team to rest their head on and the ear to listen. When a team member needs someone to talk to, Destiny is the person they go to for open arms and words of encouragement. She always has a smile on her face and always has a positive outlook on life. Although she has her plate full with school, family, and community, she is always there for those that need her. Destiny is Beauty Revived.
