He always did make an effort to try and make friends and fit in, but it didn’t work out how he intended. Nonetheless, Alex didn’t want to give up, and he continued to push on and try to make things work. However, one day in highschool, some of his classmates started to pick on him. Continuously he got bullied and picked on, and Alex was beginning to lose hope. The classmates even went as far as to make comments about his sexuality and his personality. Alex defended himself, and after that, he continued to get bullied. It had been so bad that he started to beg his parents if he could be homeschooled to get away from public schooling problems, but his parents would not budge. Alex at one point, needed to get treatment for his sexuality. After that, Alex still wanted to be homeschooled, and his parents still would not let it happen. At some points , Alex thought that if he ran away from his problems, it would solve them but it did not. With his classmates continuing to pick on him and with his parents still not letting him be homeschooled. The one thing that never really changed was the outlet to music.

Having the ability to express himself through music really helped his rough experiences in school. But with his parents not giving in, it gave him the strength to push through all of the hard times that he was put through. Going to Albright College was the right choice for Alex because he was able to finally feel like he belonged. Albright has a very welcoming community that makes people feel included and cared for.
