Meet The New School Class of 2020: Senior Spotlight, Destrie
After graduation, I will pursue a certificate for hair and makeup at Paul Mitchell and work part-time as a stylist. I hope to work on my music career and while creating creative content on social media, promoting myself, and becoming a better version of myself.
The most important lesson I’ve learned this year was to be grateful for what you have and live your life at the moment. You never know when that will be taken away from you. As a senior going through high school, I also learned to love myself and not worry about what others think about me. At the end of the day, you have to remember that you are the most caring, funny, sweetest, and beautiful ray of light that this planet ever saw, so don’t let people take that light away from you.
My hopes for the future are to have a career in music, create awesome content, clothing, and hope to bring positivity into the world to help those in need. I ultimately want to live a happy life and be my best version mentally, physically, financially, emotionally, and spiritually.
Thank you to The New School community for being so kind and welcoming, and for helping me take the next step in achieving my goal. I love each and every one of you!
