Aaron is an advocate for community engagement and positive youth development. In his hometown of Roanoke, he served on The Roanoke City Youth Services Citizens Board, The Roanoke Area Youth Substance Abuse Coalition, and The Roanoke Branch of the NAACP for many years.
In his spare time, Aaron loves to cook, hang out with friends, and of course listen to the Queen Bee herself Beyonce.
Aaron says he lives by one quote from Henry David Thoreau: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” Aaron hopes to teach people that the hands in life they are dealt won’t affect if they can or will win the race!
Aaron’s biggest role models in life are his mother Myra, Oprah, and Beyonce!
