Hello! What’s up everyone! My name is Aaron Orpilla, colleagues, friends, and students call me A-ron (Aye-ron). I am very excited to be AALEAD’s new DC Middle and High School Program Coordinator.
I have just recently moved from the San Francisco Bay area to the DMV area. A few fun things about me is the I love to sing and act, and musical theater is my jam. I have been performing since I was in high school, then moved onto community theater in San Francisco at Bindlestiff Studios. I would love to bring my passions into programming, in hopes to have the youth use performance as a platform to share their voices.
Joining the AALEAD team I hope to learn about the APA youth community in Washington, DC. I can’t say it enough, but I am very excited to be part of AALEAD community.
