At the start of March, when this picture was taken, Alec Mustafayev selected Vera as the name of the project, whose primary objective is to produce the first textbook teaching Thumoslang. In the following days, his co-writers Jairson Ascencao and Nickantony Quach produced the video Thumoslang Textbook Project One, which is Episode 5 in Season 15 of the YouTube series NDBaker93, to announce the project and articulate what was to be expected in the book. It’s hard to forget the day of their project announcement. That was when the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic. Furthermore, on the same day, the US decided to suspend all travel from Europe to the United States for 30 days in the latest dramatic response to the growing pandemic.
As soon as the project is underway, they realized that they have a chance to finish the writing before Alec graduates from high school. Such bragging rights would in the foreseeable future do Alec a great deal of good. Whatever the fiction Rebellious did for Alec since he published it at the age of 15, finish writing Vera before high-school Graduation will do a million times more for his writing career. Alec underlines this in the video The First Sales Estimates at 17, which is Episode 1 in Season 21 of NDBaker93.
Achieving such a feast means even more for Jairson. It would let him claim many things. After the textbook is published, he becomes a co-author of a non-fiction with potential for global success. With it, his Providence Haven Village could also claim that it would be capable of turning a high-school student into a global leader.
Alec’s personal reputation, Jairson’s personal reputation, and the reputation of Providence Haven Village will all be skyrocketed by such achievement. This, however, did not dawn on Jairson until his appearance on March 14th, 2020 in the video How Important is Project Vera 1, which is Episode 16 in in Season 15 of NDBaker93.
As of this writing, the once-in-a-life-time challenge is still on for both Alec and Jairson.
