Destiny is originally from Fayetteville, GA. Before beginning her career at the Haas Center, Destiny received her BA in psychology and African & African American Studies right here at Stanford University. Destiny’s studies focused on the intersectionality between psychology and sociocultural contexts and the way race and history inform education and art.
During her time as an undergrad, Destiny studied abroad in Florence, Italy and Cape Town, South Africa. While in Cape Town, Destiny completed an internship at Lalela, an arts-based educational organization. Through Lalela, Destiny was able to assist teachers with creating and implementing arts-based curriculum in local elementary and high schools. She also worked as a program associate at the Black House and as a resident assistant in Ujamaa House.
Destiny is passionate about working with marginalized students to help create spaces in higher education where they can thrive mentally, socially, and academically. She is excited that this position allows her to connect students with meaningful service opportunities. She hopes that she will be able to provide the same level of support to current and future undergrads as her mentors provided to her during her time as an undergraduate.
Destiny enjoys traveling with her friends and family, writing, cooking, solving jigsaw puzzles, and binge-watching her favorite shows.
