Bio:

Hi, I'm Aja and I am currently located in Brooklyn, NY. After 4 amazing years at Oxy, I received my law degree from USC and then moved to New York to start my legal practice. When I'm not working for my corporate clients, I put time towards my budding fashion company, my painting and my poetry. I want to be a part of this mentor network because I have benefitted from mentorship, and would love to help others in a similar way.
