Dravyn Beasley – Tennessee Nomination by Camilla Beasley Photography by KChris Photography Issue 75 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
Nomination: Dravyn has a fire in her soul and grace in her heart. She is my everyday reminder of a God who turns broken into beautiful. Early in life, she had physical obstacles to overcome. With surgery and PT, she defied the odds. She is an accomplished dancer and in her 15th year of studio dance, a 4th year dancer on her HS dance team, has won several titles and was recently accepted into the Dance program at MTSU pursuing a double major in Dance and Exercise Science (then Physical Therapy). She plans to "give back". She is a member of the NHSDA, National Honor Society, Beta Club, HOSA, Student Council, and Cotillion.
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? Something that it doesn’t cover is that I help in my community by doing service hours every month! I try to do at least 8 each month. I love to help at the local food bank, and shop with a cop/rotary club. Giving to my community brings me joy, and I enjoy doing it.
What else would you like to talk about? I’m also a part of my schools chorus, and theater program. I was junie B jones, and Gabriella from high school musical in my middle school play. Then I competed with my ladies ensemble group in high school and the general chorus. I’ve been doing it for over 6 years!
What do you feel passionate about or could talk about forever? I love to dance. I’ve done it for over 15 years. Starting at centerstage performing arts, to showcase of stars to being on my local dance team for 4 years! I’ve done every genre possible, ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, clog, hip hop, pointe etc.
How did you find your photographer, KChris Photography? What was your experience like? What did you love most about it? I found the photographer from a friend. I love Karen, she’s incredibly nice, and her photo skills are really good. She’s very optimistic and has many many ideas on poses and ideas for great pictures. I love how flexible her schedule is for the photo shoots and all the different places she has in mind as good photo spots!
