This book is a story about my life which is based on the dream of being great and successful as a young boy who afterwards came to the United States of America to pursue those dreams. Upon reaching the land of the United Stated of America, the perspective of the dream was therefore changed to the American dream and I started following the American dream and halted from pursuing it for a few years to say the least. While I was on a hiatus from pursuing the dream, I felt that a major part of my life was missing because I did not fulfill the dream. Henceforth, I eventually restarted to follow the big American dream that I once had, but this time with enormous hope and stronger faith. I endured several predicaments and obstacles during my efforts to taste the American dream. But with faith, my belief in America’s exceptionalism, perseverance, hard work, diligence, efforts, prayers, and self determination, I eventually succeeded even after I failed several times in those endeavors because of hope, faith, and the mind set that I have to make it regardless of what the obstacles could be. I made it through although it is only the beginning of the attainment of my dream. The theme of the story is to convince readers that faith, perseverance, efforts, determination and dedication and passion were the key constituents to my success of attaining the American dream and it is therefore possible for anyone to achieve any dream as long as they are willing to use and apply faith, hope, diligence, hard work, efforts, and perseverance.
