Aarón is a young person with a passion for expanding human freedom. Growing up in the Texas panhandle they saw first hand the travesties that sexual, gender, ethnic and racial minorities face on a daily basis. A student of economics at the University of North Texas, Aarón dreams of someday attending grad school and studying under one of the great modern economists. They have been politically active since 2010 and they plan to continue fighting to build a freer future not just for Texas, but for the entire world.
On most days, Aarón is either reading literature or cooking traditional Mexican food. By night, they are usually watching some band perform in a musty garage somewhere.
