ja is passionate about working for an organization like YES Prep that believes every student deserves a rigorous education. She also finds pride in working for an organization that fights to minimize educational and social inequities.


Aja started her work with YES Prep in 2015 as a Campus Recruitment Coordinator, where she worked to extend the recruitment and marketing campaign while serving as YES Prep’s local voice and brand ambassador on her college campus.


After graduating from Howard University with a degree in Biology she migrated to Houston, TX to join YES Prep full-time as the Alternative Certification Program Coordinator on the Teaching Excellence Team.  She enjoys supporting and celebrating the diversity of YES Prep’s student population through Affinity Summits, such as the YES Prep Sisterhood Summit, Fifth Ward’s Girls’ Conference, and Northbrook High School’s Women’s Conference.

During her free time, Aja enjoys traveling, spending time with her friends and family, reading, and being active in Houston’s year-round warm weather.
