Out of the deep, murky waters of neglect and abuse, Wilsdaryon Prescher used the power of music to find strength and heal and overcome the odds stacked firmly against him.
His book, This is Me Trying, tells the story of a boy who has blossomed into the man he knew he could be, despite the darkness that engulfed him throughout his childhood and adolescence. Through the power of music, Wilsdaryon discovered himself after losing touch with who he really was.
With this newfound soundtrack of life, Wilsdaryon was able to rise from the darkness and turn experiences that were once chaotic and traumatic into something pulchritudinous.
Like a lotus flower that grows from the murky waters at the bottom of the pond, Wilsdaryon has also blossomed by overcoming various forms of abuse, coping mechanisms, and stigmas.

Wilsdaryon ‘Wil’ Prescher, a new emerging author of his first book titled “This Is Is Me Trying: Navigating Through A Lifetime of Trauma,” is available on Amazon in both paperback and e-book versions featured on fine literary book sites.
Born in Temple, Texas, and at seven years old, he’d been placed into the foster care system due to trauma and abuse; sadly, he spent the next few years bouncing from foster home to foster home. At the age of twelve, Wil went to a foster home in Walnut Springs, Texas, with loving people who would eventually become his adoptive family. As Wil grew older, he developed a yearning to help individuals who have been in similar situations. He understood how navigating the foster system could be very challenging and that many were not as fortunate as he had been.
Wil has spent the last four years studying mental health and substance abuse issues while working with at-risk youth in multiple organizations.
During this time, he realized the effects of music therapy on a person’s soul and emotional well-being; he is continuing his education to fulfill his dream of becoming a therapist. He hopes to share his experiences with others to show that something good can come out of an unfortunate situation out of his control.
When he is not working or studying, Wil enjoys spending time with his family, who have adopted him. He also enjoys hiking and the outdoors. You can always find him jamming to the music of “Pink” with his two cats, and still resides outside Houston, Texas.
