15 Year Old Student, Web Developer, and Entrepreneur in Syosset, New York
Aaron Lafazan is a 15-year-old young entrepreneur and author, launching many successful ventures in a short time. Aaron is the author of What Middle School Didn't Teach Me, an Amazon Best Seller and held by the Library of Congress. He feels that in a day and age where education is becoming increasingly crucial for success, students should come out of every level of schooling feeling prepared for the real world, an accomplishment that middle schools do not allow for. What Middle School Didn't Teach Me is a past and future case study, which, with the helps of successful experts like Y Combinator Founder Paul Graham, analyzes the erroneous ways of middle schools in the United States, and crafts a blueprint for going forward in the field of education.
In addition, Aaron is the CoFounder and CEO of LIHacks, Long Island's first Hackathon (think: coding marathon). Destined to change the way we think about computer science on the East Coast, Aaron plans to host the event in Late May.
Also, Aaron is currently the Founder and CEO of Sapphire Development, a prominent Development Shop based out of New York.
Finally, Aaron manages to do all of this and continue to go to high school, where, as a sophomore, he maintains a 4.0 average.
