Arriving at a new school not knowing anyone was one of the scariest experiences of my life. When I met Alexander it seemed as if all my fears and doubts were taken away. He genuinely cared about my comfort and went out of his way to make me feel welcomed. Alexander has one of the sweetest, most gentle hearts out there. Throughout high school Alexander has been a calm refuge in the midst of the storm. No what struggles I am going through, I know Alexander will be there to give me a person to talk to. Alexander you are an inspiration to me and all the people you touch with your soothing words.
