Matt Dishman, Fordham University

We brought Aaron to Fordham University to speak with our students regarding leadership and ability. Aaron holds an excellent perspective on this topic as he has experienced first-hand what it means to transition away from being fully able-bodied. Our students were deeply impacted by Aaron’s words as Aaron’s story is genuine and surprisingly relatable. Aaron does an excellent job at relating his loss of sight to the losses and/or challenges we all experience as individuals across the lifespan. Aaron is also extremely personable and enjoys connecting with students after presenting. Fordham students had the opportunity to interact with Aaron on a more personal level and were thankful for the opportunity.
