The reason I joined Beta Alpha Delta Fraternity Inc. is because I was looking for something. I was looking for a sense of belonging. Growing up it was tough and rough. As I got older I tried up change who I was up for in with others and after a while it got played out. I started living for myself and being true to myself. In B.A.D I found my place, I found the place where I can be myself and I’m not judged or feeling like I’m being out in a box. I have NO regrets on the family and brotherhood they found me.
For me being part of BETA is bigger than each one of us individually, but all of us together form something unexplainable. From lending a helping hand in our communities to trying to make a difference in the world there’s nowhere else I’d rather be while doing these things. To find somewhere I was accepted for me and they had the same vision as I did is amazing and I wouldn’t want to call anyone else my BROTHAS.
I Joined BAD because…
For me, it’s the great sense of camaraderie. That feeling of having a family outside of blood relations is one of the greatest feelings. That’s why I joined. I am prior military and was use to always feeling like I had someone to call or visit if I just needed to talk or have a “getaway” from day to day stresses. When I got out of the military, I began feeling like I was missing that. When I found Beta Alpha Delta, I felt like I found that again. I am and will always be my Brothas keeper!
I initially joined Beta Alpha Delta for networking purposes but in a very short time found a Family I never had and also didn’t even know I wanted but I definitely needed. I love helping others that are less fortunate than myself and really making a difference in the community. Beta has given me a place and guidance to do just that. This Fraternity has really pushed me to new heights and I’m so proud to be a B.A.D Brotha for life!
