My name is Destiny Cates and I am from Chesapeake, VA. I recently graduated from William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA, where I majored in Biology. In school, I was involved in Baptist Collegiate Ministries and I sang in a gospel choir on campus. I am interested in pursuing medicine in the future and hope to attend medical school in 2021. I enjoy listening to music, singing, dancing, reading, and watching movies.
I chose to serve with BSVM this year because I developed a passion for service in college through mission trips and community outreach. I am also eager to grow spiritually and allow more of my life to be formed by God’s will. I am excited for what this year will bring and I cannot wait to see what valuable lessons I will learn by serving with the wonderful people of Richmond.
