Aidan Satterwhite

Aidan Satterwhite attended Winston Preparatory School from grades 6 through 12 for his generalized anxiety and ADHD. He firmly believes that without specialized help, he would not have found the strength to accomplish what he has in his life and industry. Aidan went to Sacred Heart University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in computer science. During his time there, he had the privilege to serve as vice president of both the philosophy club and the rock music club. As an avid and passionate musician, he swears by the therapeutic nature of music and dedicates much of his time to understanding, learning, empathizing, and growing with his musical talents. He currently works in the IT department of The Hartford, and he strives to graduate to a position in cybersecurity.
