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

I believe that participating in the Alpha Beautillion Program will benefit me in so many ways. Having an opportunity to participate in all of the different workshops will really help me to develop my critical thinking skills and my ability to organize my thoughts. Participating in the Oratorical competition will help me to further develop my public speaking skills which is an area that I would like to gain more confidence in. I also believe that I would benefit from being able to be surrounded by other black young men who are striving to better themselves as it will help me to build a sense of community.
