Through his personal experience as a child and young adult, Aubrey came in close contact with death on several occasions through gang activity in his community. Since 2007, Aubrey has dedicated himself to God and service for the development of his community and nation. These activities of service were mainly driven through his youth organization- The Youth Organization for Upliftment.
Though experiencing many financial difficulties growing up, Aubrey completed a Bachelor's degree in Political Leadership, Strategy, and Management and a Master's Degree in Government/Politics. Through strategy and management, he is focused on using education as a tool for creating opportunities for those without opportunities and for those who believe that things won’t get better. His personal mantra is expressed in two ways:
- One is that "it’s not only about the quantitative results acquired from activities but the qualitative impact we make on people’s lives."
- Secondly, he believes that "there is no height to which we cannot climb by using the active intelligence of your mind."
Aubrey through his discipline and focus on God’s mission through his community involvement and business, has been recognized by President Barack Obama and Her Majesty the Queen of England for his outstanding leadership and nation building in 2015 and 2018 respectively. Aubrey’s faith has driven him to be the visionary and authentic leader that he is today-, consistently telling himself "I CAN."
