BROWNSVILLE, Texas (CNS) — When Danielle Doty, Miss Texas Teen USA, arrived in the Bahamas to compete in the Miss Teen USA pageant, she surrendered to God’s plan for her life, the Harlingen native said.
“I let go and let God,” Doty told The Valley Catholic, newspaper of the Brownsville Diocese, in a telephone interview from New York City. “I was there, I had prepared, I had worked out, gotten in shape and from that point on, it was really in God’s hands. I knew he would do what was best.”
Doty, a parishioner at St. Anthony Church in Harlingen, was crowned Miss Teen USA 2011 July 16 at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
