Meet Aaron from Georgia

July 3, 2017

With a strong family history in engineering and medical professions, rising sophomore Aaron is an aspiring astrophysicist. But he could just as easily see himself as happy as a musician instead. 


I want to be an astrophysicist. I'm taking Applied Physics here because of that goal. But now that I think about it, I could also see myself being a professional cellist. It would be incredible to play an instrument that I love so much for the rest of my life.

My three siblings have come to EXPLO before me. My sister and one of my brothers play the violin, my other brother plays the viola, and I play the cello. 

I started playing in sixth grade and I love playing classical. You can easily find the song within the music, which is much harder to do with other types. I once tried to play 'Firework' by Katy Perry, but let’s just say that I wasn’t a fan.
