Like many of the students he assists, Aaron is always on the go. He regularly plays soccer and ran his first half-marathon in the spring of 2019. Aaron graduated in 2018 from Manchester University, earning a bachelor’s degree in English, with a concentration on writing. His favorite place on the USF campus is the North Campus gym because of the personal memories it holds. He played basketball tournaments at the USF site as a youngster.

Aaron’s advice: “Choose a school that you believe can become a home away from home for the next four years of your life. If you find that, then you will have the best four years of your life.”
