Throughout his academic life, Destin has focused on the humanities and the art of written communication. During his time as an undergraduate, he chose writing-intensive courses that allowed him to analyze a variety of creative forms, including literature, painting, photography, sculpture, performance art, and film. Authoring such essays not only sharpened his writing skills but also enabled him to think more critically and originally. In addition to interpreting creative works, Destin has studied political science, sociology, logic, and business. These disciplines provided balance to his writing, incorporating more organization, pragmatism, and clarity to his work. Furthermore, Destin has five years of tutoring experience and has helped numerous students improve their skills in written communication.
