40 of the Forty: Aubrey

Aug 2015


We got to know Aubrey a bit at last year’s State of Out Youth forum! In her 40 of the Forty interview, she shares a bit more about who she is and what she loves!

Check it out:

What do you think about when you wake up?

What can I do better today that I didn’t do yesterday?

What’s your biggest dream?

My biggest dream is to open up a coffee consignment shop that sells high-end pieces. I also want an art gallery inside.

What is it like to be you?

It’s pretty complicated. I just try to live day-by-day, step-by-step. You know… taking my time and learning myself and becoming a better person.

What is it like to be you? Give us the tweet-able version on Facebook and Twitter!

And don’t forget to tune in for this year’s State of Out Youth on Thursday, September 24 at 5PM ET – or join us in person in Houston, TX!

The 40 of the Forty list gives lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth who have experiences with homelessness and/or housing instability a chance to speak for themselves. The young people on the list were nominated by homeless youth service providers, social workers, educators, individuals, and other folks across the country. Over the course of forty weeks, we’ll be releasing full length interviews with each young person featured on our list. Nominate a young person today!
