Aaliyah Watson


Aaliyah Watson, born and raised in Atlanta, GA, has committed her life to creating a world of producers rather than a world full of consumers. Being brought up in a faith-based household, Aaliyah has worked to ensure that education is a priority in her life. As a rising Junior at the prestigious Spelman College, Aaliyah remains humble and implements a spirit of excellence throughout her everyday life all while understanding that failures are bound to occur but do not define who you are and where you are going.

Her greatest life challenges have been her personal and educational development. Aaliyah has chosen to not only live by her faith, but dedicate her life towards making redemptive change amongst her community. She has realized that this idea of life is not solely based upon one purpose, but the journey and the growth and developmental through many purposes. Aaliyah hopes to continue the work with Gifted towards being a beacon of light for individuals all across America who wish to make a true impact within their own communities.
