2020 was an active year for Destiny. She joined the STC membership, and quickly completed the STC TechComm Fundamentals Bootcamp Course, charting a new course into technical communication. Finding free time on her hands due to a job loss, she additionally began a new master's degree with Southern New Hampshire University in creative writing.
