DOTC Blog Celebration: Meet Derek Halstead

Welcome to the Defenders of the Covenant blog celebration!

Today, I'd like to introduce you to Derek Halstead.

Derek is eighteen years old, and, like Hannah, lives in the refuge. I've already introduced Derek a bit in this post.  Today, I asked him to answer a few questions:


Favorite subject? Do I have to choose just one? I find science fascinating. And history, too. And computers, electronics, refuge systems... It's too hard to choose! 

Secret crush? *blushes* Do I have to answer that? Well, I think Hannah is pretty special. She doesn't really notice me, though.


Hobbies? Learning new stuff, reading. I play the piano a little. Nothing like Hannah can, though. She's amazing.

Favorite book? I've read so many! I'll say The Lord of the Rings.


Secret dream? Well, this is really weird, considering I live underground, but I've always dreamed of flying. Maybe even being a fighter pilot. Don't think it's going to happen, though. I'd also love to fly in outer space. I'd love to see the world and be able to study it all in person.

Thanks, Derek!

The Derek Prize Package:

Two fighter jet toys and  a framed picture of the Salt Lake Temple. (approx. value $20)

I like the strong, sturdy name and he has so many interests. Is he a little shy or was it just answering the questions?
My grandsons would love those jets. Please enter me. Thanks.
