About the Authors: Hayden Deslich Adrian Aguilar I am Adrian Aguilar. Through- out the 12 years I have lived, I have been through a lot of rough times. I am not perfect and that’s why I am not worried when I make a mistake or if someone doesn’t believe in me, because it teaches me that I will always have God, my family, and friends, but especially my dad. He always believed in me and helped me with school and getting past all of the hatred in my life. Because of these faults, I will learn what not to do when trying to pursue my dreams as a scientist or actor. I hope to achieve my dreams and influence many other people to try their best and know that no matter what, God is always by their side. My name is Hayden Deslich and I am twelve years old. When I grow up, I want to be a Civil Engineer. To accomplish this goal, I need to be educated by going to college in order to be the one behind the desk drawing out a brand new robotic building. If I retire or am not able to be a Civil Engineer, I will become a missionary. I would go around the world to pray with people and tell them that there is a light in the world. His name is Jesus Christ. I also want to be known for doing the right thing and making the world a better place before I am in Heaven with the all mighty Lord and Savior. 11
