Aaliyah Stewart is a purpose driven Entrepreneur who values service to humanity.
At the age of 18, Aaliyah established Next Level Living Nutrition and opened her first location August 11, 2018. As an Entrepreneur, she understands that profit has a purpose and the potential to make a positive impact in the life of people in her community. Aaliyah invests a portion of her proceeds to host an annual toy drive for children from the inner city.
Aaliyah is the Founder of the ASW Foundation, an organization she established to provide hope for the lost. At the age of 14 years old, she established the ASW Foundation during her freshman year of high school in honor of her two brothers who were killed due to senseless gun violence. During a time that she experienced intense pain from the death of her brothers, she used her voice as a tool to help other people heal.
By 15 years old, Aaliyah had already attended 12 funerals, three of which were for her own family members. However, she shifted the trajectory of her life from tragedy to triumph by using her faith as fuel. Aaliyah hosts seminars to help people deal with the adversities of life and to find hope again. As a high school student, Aaliyah began providing scholarships in memory of her brothers, to help high school graduates experience a successful transition to college. She has grown from tragedy to triumph and now she is leading the next generation of world changers to do the same in their communities.
After five years of local and national speaking, at the age of 18, she launched her official global professional career as a Motivational Speaker Friday January 18, 2019. Then Saturday February 23, 2019 Aaliyah began her journey on the traveling Worthy Empowerment Tour. She also delivered a speech that won the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the Legacy Awards Gala in Chicago, Illinois on the same day. Aaliyah speaks to offer hope; to offer peace; to help people and to change nations.
