I want to thank all the Brothers who had a direct hand in my development, as well as, those Brothers who live the life of Alpha men daily. All of you inspired me to begin my journey.” The chapter looks forward to utilizing Crawford’s skillsets, as it is believed that we are all a helping hand. Onward and Upward!
