Deiby Estyven
His name is Deiby. He is twenty years old and comes from a humble, rural family. His story was written alongside his mom and his grandma; he never knew a dad, but his grandfather was always there supporting him. He is the oldest of six siblings. His mother worked very hard to give him an education. He always had dreams when he was little; like any boy who is beginning to dream of being a grown-up and accomplishing things, that's how he was. As he continued to grow, he still held on to his dreams. After a while, he started looking for a job; one day he was going to do an interview when something unexpected happened and he was taken in to the army. In the beginning it was hard on him because there was still that part of him that needed his mom, but he stuck with it anyway. Even now that he is not with her, he feels like he needs to keep striving for her sake, to provide for her—not only materially, but also to give her the joy of a mother whose son is getting ahead—and to always give her his support. Even though he is far away from that warmth, he has never felt like he was out in the cold; it just gives him more reason to keep fighting and thinking of his future.

It was approximately three years ago that he arrived in the city, his dreams still intact; actually he no longer saw them as dreams, but rather as a goal that he had to work hard to achieve: to be a great chef. And right then, he set out on what is his life plan. Never limiting himself to just one thing, he also studies many other things, like being a DJ. He has liked music since he was little, and that way, he can have his own restaurant and bar.

So he started working to pay for his own education since he didn't have any financial help from his family; he does want to help them, and to thank his grandma and his mom for all the love they gave him, for all that they taught him: in order to live, you need to dream, and in order to dream, you need to have a clear vision. And that's what he wants, to be great (it might not be much to some people, but in his life, it would be great): to be a professional, and for his life's plan not to remain wishful thinking, but rather for his effort to pay off a little more every day. A boy's dreams should never end, in spite of setbacks, because the most beautiful thing in life is to finally reach one's biggest goals.

Hace unos 3 años aproximadamente llego a la ciudad todavía con sus sueños, si no que ya no los veía tanto como un sueño si no como una meta en la cual debía esforzarse por conseguir ser un Gran Cocinero y ahí comenzó ya lo que es su proyecto de vida y nunca se conforma con solo una cosa, si no estudiar muchas más cosas como ser Dj porque desde niño le gusta la música y así tener su propio Bar Restaurante
Pues así fue comenzó a trabajar para pagar su propio estudio ya que no tenia ayuda económica por parte de su familia, pero tiene las ganas de ayudarles a ellos, y agradecerle a su mamita y a su mama por cada cariño que le dieron por lo mucho que le enseñaron que para vivir se necesita soñar y para soñar hay que tener todo claro, y eso es lo que el quiere ser muy grande, tal vez no sea mucho para algunos pero si muy grande en su vida y es ser un profesional y que sus proyectos de vida no queden en una ilusión si no que su esfuerzo se vea cada día más y más… Que el sueño de un niño nunca acabe a pesar de las derrotar porque lo más bonito de vivir es llegar a cumplir las metas más grandes.
