Class Notes Aaron C. Gouveia 1/15/2020  
After being promoted to Vice President at the Belfort Group—a public relations and integrated marketing agency in Boston—Aaron Gouveia ('01) signed a book deal and will publish his first nonfiction title in June 2020. It's called "Raising Boys to be Good Men" and gives tips on raising boys (his three sons are 11, 6, and 4) in the age of toxic masculinity. He secured this opportunity after going viral in October 2018 on Twitter discussing his middle son's heartbreak after being bullied for wearing nail polish at school. The Twitter thread was retweeted more than 80,000 times and garnered a response from Rob Gronkowski, while landing Aaron and his son Sam in USA TODAY, The Guardian, Mashable, People, Pop Sugar, BuzzFeed, Axios, Good Morning America, and the TODAY Show.

His book is available on Amazon for preorder:

Class Notes Aaron C. Gouveia 1/2/2018  
I was recently promoted to Senior Director at my day job at a Boston integrated marketing agency. I manage a staff of half a dozen and work with clients such as MIT Sloan,, Cushman & Wakefield, and Berkshire Choral International. My job is fast-paced, deadline-driven, and results-oriented -- which means all the lessons I learned from those late nights at The Beacon have come in handy.

My three boys are now 9, 4, and 2 which means there's no sleep or rest of any kind. My wife MJ (class of '01) and I recently bought a new house in Franklin, MA where my oldest walks to school and I can walk to the commuter rail every day to head into Boston for work.
