“The brothers are welcoming and know precisely what they want in an individual when bringing new members in; to me, joining was a calling,” Alex commented. “Our values were pushed hard on me, and it did not take long to see why they mattered so much. Excellence is my favorite because I have yet to see a reason as to why I should stop developing my character.”
