Blake was a quiet middle schooler who had a few friends, but never really stood out. He was a bit shy and withdrawn. After hearing about Be The One from a friend, he was curious. He liked the idea of connecting with a guy by talking and playing games, and was convinced this was the right program for him. He was quickly matched with Chad. The two enjoy their time together playing card games, learning how to play pickleball, and talking about life. Blake is happy that he has someone to talk to about his daily struggles.
