    Awesome profile, Vogue! Makes me want to hang out with Aja!!
    I'm eager to see how things go while she's in office... but for now I love that a confident woman has returned to her family's hometown to make it the community that she wants it to be.

    Very inspiring story. Here's an admirable leader who despite the adversity she went through as a child living in Compton went back after so many years with confidence that she will change it's negative culture. We need more Aja Brown's in this world and I know their out there, most likely in underserved communities waiting for that opportunity or for someone to show them how talented they are.
