“Justin’s charisma and compassion rings true when he speaks. His use of music, humor and direct testimony is incredibly, unique, and separates him from his peers. If you are looking for a refreshing message, creative delivery and a selfless, tireless worker, Justin is your man.”

“Justin was incredible. Not only is he so kind, personable, and easy going, his presentation was dynamite. He engaged almost 400 new students (who never met each other) in a super hot gym, and he did it with a smile! He was so energetic, dynamic, and just rolled with the punches. I felt like I knew him forever, just a real pleasure to be around.”
