Hello, my name is Aaron Edward Lockhart. I was born August 27, 1996, in Newark, New Jersey. I am the middle child of three. I have an older brother and a younger sister. Although I grew up in a loving family, I struggled with many things, such as being overweight, depression, and anger management. Because I was a child that held my feelings inside, I became angry and depressed. These emotions caused me to make wrong decisions. At times, I was being bullied and then I became the bully. I know how it feels from both sides. As a teenager, I was incarcerated. Since then, I promised to change my life for the better. I am not perfect, but I know through Christ I can do all things. One day at a time is how I live my life. I pray that God will be please with me, and my family and I will always be together and love one another. I hope through my series of, “Aaron’s Life Journeys,” children all over the world will be affected in a positive way; and somehow, we can connect through our stories. I want children to know they are not alone and it’s okay to reach out and talk with someone.
