As the great Chance, the Rapper once said, “Call me Mr. Mufasa, I had to master stampedes.” By overcoming a learning disability at a young age, Justin’s life has been one long stampede to master, which culminated in him being the first person from his family to earn a Masters Degree in Higher Education/Student Affairs from Western Carolina University.
Over the span of ten years, Justin worked in a variety of different higher ed departments including Orientation, Residence Life, Admission, and Family Programming. You name it, he’s done it. Through his work, he’s deepened his passion of helping college students succeed.
Justin is now a Lead Facilitator at Swift Kick, a company that has won 7 national speaking titles and worked with over 650 organizations all over the world including Disney, Nike, and Apple.
On a personal note, Justin’s journey has led him from the land of Bojangles and Cookout in North Carolina, to Illinois, Texas, and finally following his dream of living in the hustle of New York City. In his free time he loves to dance and dream about the day he will moderate the Hot Topics table at “The View”.
