One of Aaron’s hobbies outside of class is playing soccer. He started playing soccer due to the influence of his father, who takes him to parks near their apartment and Aaron will be kicking the ball around. In China, when most primary students were playing basketball, Aaron was the only student who picked up the soccer ball and played soccer.

Aaron looks up to Cristiano Ronaldo the best, who is one of the best players in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo, as for Aaron, is an all-rounder, who is good with his left foot, right foot, header, and tall, so he can win the balls high in the air. Aaron also believes that, off the pitch, Ronaldo is also a role model because he is very disciplined, always trains hard, and pushes his body to the limit.
