"My outlook on life and society has changed due to this miraculous experience. My term in the MBS House of Representatives, along with the Keynote Speakers throughout the week, taught me what it meant to be a man in today's society. The responsibility MBS instilled in our day-to-day lives gave us a sense of pride, which remains in my life today."
