Aaron Henderson


Capital One


My road in life has taken me all over.
Have a passion for basketball, but the NBA never drafted me. I was cut from summer team in the late 90's.
Then I made a big mistake by just walking away from my basketball scholarship.
After college I was very lost and worked any kind of job available just to survive.
Even tried medical jobs like phlebotomy and medical assistance.
Then one day I realized I wasn't getting anywhere without a real degree in medicine so I resigned.
So while still going between jobs I was referred to Capital One by my fiance.
I THEN WAS HIRED and have been here since 2012. I want to further my education and finish college.
Either do sports working for Capital One or I can branch out somewhere into the sports world.
