Jon Aitken

Jon came to Rife magazine as a YouTuber and serial tweeter. Throughout his internship he frequently covered LGBT+ issues, live events and even got into an online argument with a high profile artist about their comments on whether young people belong in cultural places (they do).

He now works as a freelance video editor, content creator and workshop leader, getting young people to make their first ever vlogs.
