Today's Amazing Children
Benjamin’s favorite subjects in school are music and math. When it’s time for fun, he’s all about basketball and, of course, he’s a big fan of the Miami Heat – especially the “big three” – Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.” In fact, he’s confident he’ll grow to be as tall as Bosh one day and dreams of becoming a pro basketball player.
Like most boys his age, Benjamin has a very healthy appetite, and he can name off quite a few favorites – burgers, pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, corn on the cob, and always topped off with a heaping bowl of ice cream for dessert. What super power would he like to possess? “I’d like to be able to run really fast, like a flash,” he says. His three wishes in the world would be for a private mansion, a pet tiger and a million dollars. What would he do with so much money? “Give it to a charity in Haiti,” Benjamin says.
