Destiny’s time with Back Cove has been both productive and successful, to say the least. Luckily for us, she was able to take a few moments out of her busy schedule as a newly appointed Lamination Team Leader to answer a few of our questions. In the world of Back Cove Lamination there’s a lot of timing, logistics, and shuffling molds, but Destiny’s abundant knowledge and natural leadership quickly became apparent as we spoke, as did the deep respect of her coworkers. Everyone here at Back Cove would like to offer our thanks and congratulations to Destiny for five amazing years!
Do you have a lucky number?
Eleven. It was my jersey number from high school field hockey all the way through softball in the military.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
Italy to visit the vineyards. I love the culture of Tuscany, the art, the food and wine. I did a lot of traveling in the military, discovered that I love Korean food, but I never got to go to Italy.
If you could learn any instrument what would you play?
Tell me about something that was difficult but made you a better person?
Leaving home and joining the army. I grew up a military brat, but I never anticipated the effect it would have on me. I always wanted to be a soldier, even when I was a kid.
If you could send a message back through time to your younger self what would you say?
Don’t grow up too fast.
Tell me about the person who has impacted your life the most:
My grandmother. She is my hero. She taught me a lot about life, compassion, and working hard. She was always ready to listen. I wish I could talk to her today, not about anything in particular, just about life.
What do you cook when no one else is home?
Margaritas and take out!
What is your dream car?
Pepsi or Coke?
What are you most proud of?
Joining the Army.
What’s something your mother taught you that you’ve never forgotten?
The Golden Rule
What’s your favorite book of all time?
The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein. I love the lesson of selfless generosity.
What movie, no matter how many times you’ve seen it, do you have to watch every time it’s on?
How honest are you?
I’m very blunt.
What super power would you like to have?
What’s your favorite dessert?
Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting!
Is it ever okay to break the rules?
That’s a tough question to answer. I guess it depends on whether or not someone will be hurt by it.
Name one thing that always makes you smile:
What’s your least favorite thing about the world today?
The general lack of empathy people have for each other.
If you won a million dollars what would you spend it on?
Family and friends, then bank the rest.
Where would you go in a time machine?
I think I’d go to Medieval times. I’d break all the social constructs about women though, because I would want to learn a trade, support myself with the work of my own hands. Not to mention, I could ride horses everywhere.
Would you rather be deaf or blind?
Can I choose to be blind in one eye and deaf in one ear?
