“I’ve learned that success is attainable at any age. I came from humble beginnings but managed to earn science and electrical engineering degrees at 22, and, later, a Ph. D. at 43. By 45 I was an adjunct professor at George Washington University and started figure skating internationally at 55. But nothing has felt as good as this: two figure skating medals, gold in singles and bronze in pairs, at age 63!” — Talib Aleem

Teens and Tweens Plot Age-Friendly Future Cities
Disrupt Aging was proud to participate in the AARP-sponsored Future City Competition with 40,000 middle schoolers from Virginia to Nigeria. The students worked with coaches and experts for eight months to plan and build tabletop models of cities 100 years from now. This year’s competition theme: age-friendly cities. Winning teams emphasized accessibility, healthy aging, and community integration. And it wasn’t just the designs that were inspired. Contest judge and AARP Vice President of Enterprise Initiatives, Kamili Wilson, was impressed by the age positivity that students incorporated into their designs. “They will change the future for the better, I’m convinced!”
