Share the Love: Kid Becomes Guest Celebrity DJ in Rochester
106.9 KROC and Clements Subaru teamed up to Share the Love by surprising, Aleks, a seven year old in Rochester, with his very own special escort to the radio station so that he could become a celebrity DJ for the day! Samantha, his mom, shared that Aleks has had a challenging year and to have this kind of experience really would give him a confidence boost.
Aleks had no idea what was happening when an entire crew came to pick him up from daycare! His reaction was priceless (his little sister was super excited too), check out the video below:
The entire experience touched Aleks life but it also impacted every single person that was a part of this surprise too. We could all tell how much it meant to Aleks that he was shown he mattered and important. Aleks, you are loved! You are welcomed to the studio anytime to get on the mic!
Here's what Samantha said afterwards:
Danielle, I know you already heard me say thank you a bunch of times. But I cannot tell you how amazing this was for Aleks. Also, how grateful I am to you for organizing this for him. Words cannot describe how truly amazing you are. .......Today not only positively impacted his self confidence, but between you, the other staff at KROC, and Julio sharing his story, started building his trust back with adults.
