I am Aaronn Wilson, the Creative Assistant at Spirit Awakening Foundation. I am a writer, film enthusiast and most importantly a youth activist. After experiencing the criminal justice system at seventeen, when I was tried as an adult, I feel it a necessity to give back. Spirit Awakening Foundation has not only given me an outlet, it has also helped me to improve myself, by digging deep into and dealing with issues that I had hidden from my own consciousness.
I am currently a film major at CSULA and I work hard to perfect my art. This is not only for myself, but to share with others, so that they too can see the possibility of allowing the odds to shift in their favor.
Through the program's mind-expanding writing exercises, I found my confidence to spread my wings and fly with expression of vision and thought. With this newfound confidence, I enrolled into a program called ManifestWorks, which is the nonprofit that prepared me for the Production Coordinator job that is in progress.
I am proud to represent the magnificent organization that is Spirit Awakening Foundation.
