How do you feel you will benefit from the Alpha Beautillion Program?

I believe the Alpha Beautillion will benefit me to build my critical thinking skills, setting goals, grow into my cultural awareness, build my confidence and self-esteem, learn from Alpha men with values and who set expectations, and help me with planning for and selecting the right college.

What is a quote or scripture that resonates with you?

John 13:7 – You may not realize now what I’m doing but later you will understand.
