Adelaida Peterson is probably one of the most humble person anyone would ever meet. Not only is she beautiful, she is an accomplished woman, a mother, a wife, and most of all a woman with a good heart that want to make a difference in the world. Adelaida is the best person to represent Chesterfield.
