In 2014 I had the first contact to a Knightly Order in Germany when I spoke to the Grandmaster ret. of the German Knightly Order of St. Michael, learning that it is so easy to help other people around. That was the starting point for my knightly career, which began within this aforementioned Order. Through this Order I met in the course of time many worthy people, who shared the same ideas like me: To help needy persons and try to do as much good things as possible.
