Aiden Lee was born in Dallas, Texas before moving to Oro Valley, Arizona in 5th grade. There, he has attended a charter school for grades 6-12 where he found a community that became a second family to him. Although his high school career involved a liberal arts education with an emphasis on STEM fields, he found a passion for economics and politics primarily during his junior and senior years. At school, Aiden served as Treasurer of National Honors Society, and he founded Peer Diversity, a group that works with the Anti-Defamation League to train student leaders to identify and combat discrimination, hate, and bias. This experience gave him an outlet to challenge injustices of all kinds including the prejudice often facing the LGBTQ community. Outside of his high school studies, he served on his local town’s Youth Advisory Council before becoming President in 2016. Along with this, Aiden was a Board Director of the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing care and education for those living with HIV/AIDS as well as the LGBTQ community. It was these two organizations that ignited in Aiden a passion for politics and advocacy. Aiden is a student at Yale University, where he plans to study economics and psychology while continuing to be an advocate for equality and justice.
