What influenced you to change your name from Alex to Cade?

“In life as we face many challenges, my biggest challenge in life occurred this summer. I spent 31 days in Fort Knox, KY in basic camp for the U.S. Army. During my time there I grew as a person, and felt like I entered the manhood phase of my life. Changing my name was an indication that the person I used to be was no more. Cade is my middle name and that is why I chose it as my new identity.”
