Since childhood, Trevor Jackson has been acting in projects like Criminal Minds, Hit the Floor, Burning Sands and currently on Grown-ish.
On the Freeform show, Jackson plays Aaron Jackson, a sophomore college student with a passion for activism. While he’s protesting and romancing Yara Shahidi’s character, Zoey Johnson, Jackson is looking super stylish—much like the actor in real life.
For our March 2018 issue, the 21-year-old talks to us about his fresh approach to fashion.

“What works for me is always comfort, but I also like to go outside the box—mixing things people would not expect but then when it comes together, it’s pretty dope.”
“Pick out the socks, and he will take care of the rest.”
“It’s a privilege and a challenge to portray such an iconic role as Priest in Superfly. On Grown-ish I play Aaron Jackson, who is all about politics, the culture and furthering the equality of his people. I titled my new album Rough Drafts Pt. 1 because we are always a work in progress.”
“The Black women in my life are resilient, strong, nurturing and more powerful than they know.”
