Ms. Destiny As Cover Interview Feature – TheCelebrity.Online Magazine January 2023 Edition
Childhood to Adulthood – How was the transition from your childhood into adulthood/teenage and what good and bad things you remember?
Ms. Destiny: As a child, I recall being an avid daydreamer. It was a means of escaping my reality. I am a surviving victim of severe sexual and physical child abuse. Naturally, I sought attention and displayed behavioral problems stemming from the abuse. I was uneducated on the resources available to me as a minor. Some unhealthy behaviors could have been ultimately detrimental in my adult life.
There were a few incidents in my teenage years which triggered me to take control of my life and become better than my past. One of the steps involved being an active community advocate for children who have been subjected to abuse and neglect. I founded Destiny’s Giving Hand Inc. in 2017 where the sole mission is to educate while giving back to my local community. My career in the Texas child welfare system has allowed me to advocate for many children on the state and federal levels over the last decade.
I believe my sole purpose of enduring an abusive childhood was to develop a level of empathy for children and to protect the vulnerable. My prayer is that during my time on earth, I am able to save many lives with my story and witness many success stories from others. You can read details on the link below pertaining to my overall purpose for advocacy:
Struggle – What hardships you faced during your life?
Ms. Destiny: I have endured so many struggles that have shaped my mindset. Abuse, neglect, rejection, domestic abuse, mental & emotional abuse, depression, homelessness, and the list goes on. I’m thankful I do not look like what I have come from.
After graduating with my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology, there were many life lessons I quickly realized college did not teach me, that experience did. I created a saying years ago that I still live by today – “ It’s the times you do NOT step out on faith, that hurt you the most.” What is worse than being told no?
What is worse than being rejected? The answer is, the unknown is worse than knowing. We must try in every aspect of our lives. In hindsight, it is the no’s and rejections that move us forward rather than being stuck or stagnant in the unknown. Turn your negative into a positive & use it as a tool to progress.
What make you unique from your competitors in the industry and life?
Ms. Destiny: I believe what sets me a part is passion and consistency. Many people see the surface level success and and attempt to replicate. I always say, “Vision cannot be duplicated.” Of course with any business there are competitors. However, we must use our God-given vision to set us a part. That is actually where the foundation of your success resides – YOUR VISION (Mind).
