    New children book

    Father and daughter Destiny and John Constantin from Lockport NY writes the new 5 star rating children book called the journey with dad Destiny Constantin was born in 1994 in Buffalo, New York. I was born with a bone disease and everyday to this day I face challenges. Recently, my parents and I moved to Lockport, New York. Graduated from 8th grade from International School #45 with an award in English, Physical Education, and the first student to received the Mary Henderson Award. At the age of 16, I graduated Lockport High school a year earlier than I was supposed to with a diploma of regents. Currently I am a full time student at Niagara County Community College studying childhood education. Next year I will be transferring to Niagara University and expanding to special education. This is my first children book written and it’s even more special to make this book with my father. It has been one of my dreams come true. John Constantin was born in 1972 in Buffalo, New York. He grew up with a younger brother and an older step-brother and step-sister. A graduate of Riverside High School, overcame a learning disability, contrary to others' expectations, to attain a degree in computer repairs from the Educational Opportunity Center. After holding two jobs in the computer field and moving to Lockport, N.Y., John enrolled as a full-time student at Niagara County Community College, where he is currently a full-time student, studying digital media. John has been married for 23 years to his "very supportive" wife Tina. Destiny, their daughter, currently attends NCCC, majoring in special education. John's inspiration for the book came one day while driving down the street, seeing a "creepy field". He imagined a father and daughter as being "like two lone wolves," which, with his daughter's help, was the genesis for The Journey With Dad.
