When I first enteredBBYO,I was doingit for all the wrong reasons.Basically,
brothertold me to join, and I thought l'd be lettingthem down if I didn't go becausemy
brotherwasvery involved.Butthen it happened;
that momentwhen an alephrealizes
that this
is not just any organization,but a home filledwith brothers,brotherswho sharea bondthat is
incomparableand not to.be broken.lt wabat a separatesprogramwith the pastGAGBrandon
Rattiner.I don't know what it was about it, but at that moment I realizedthat there was no
placel'd rather be in the world.As soonasthis happened,I got as involvedas I possiblycould.I
was electedthe YoungMembershipChairon my chapterboard,and helpedrecruitabout20
new membersfor my chapterwhile I was only a freshman.Thefollowingyear I ranfor Chapter
Moreh and won, and eventuallyfinishedthe yearwith 64 rnembers.Thencamethe yearthat
definedmy AZAexperiencethus far. I hadto makea decision:run for RegionalGodolor
ChapterGodol;the RAGelectioncamefirst. I caucused,
went throughmeet the candidates,
and when they calledmy nameto ensurethat if I waselectedlhat I would serve;,
I responded,
thazak is my home,and they needme most...fornow that is where I shallstay."Thiswasthe
bestdecisionI haveevermade.As a chaptergodolthis year, I am ableto rnosteffectivelyhelp
