Stewart is a sophomore and Southern Union State Community College and has been a member of the National Youth Leadership Council since 2015. In 2017, Stewart began leading a Roots & Shoots group at a local elementary school in which he teaches the kindergarten and first grade classes that kids can make a difference. Although he values all his projects, his favorite is making Valentines day cards and gifts with his Roots & Shoots group and then hand delivering them to a local nursing home with all is group members. Stewart also started his own small business, ReWorkz, in which he turns what many people would call trash, such as aluminum drink cans, buttons, and glassware, into Christmas ornaments, magnets, and yard art. The proceeds from ReWorkz then go back into his community.
