What if there was a motivational youth speaker who could present a powerful message that cuts deep to the heart of issues teens care about? Acceptance, bullying, fear for their future?

This is where Justin comes in. In 45 min, Justin delivers a “shock and awe” treatment.
He immediately engages their attention before even saying a word. Then gets them on his side by making them laugh about his status as a nerd, his unrelenting A.D.D., and the crazy-stupid things we all do in life. Justin then gains their trust through stories from his own experiences as a kid and teenager. Stories that make them laugh even more, or keep them on the edge of their seat in suspense.
Once he has them, Justin dives into the painful past - taking them from laughter to tears, interjecting powerful teaching points that will help them realize the true reality of their own mortality. All the while, supplying them with doses of life's medicine - laughter.
Each story, though seemingly unrelated, ties together seamlessly. Then, the highlight of the program, is an original song, played and performed by Justin, that will have even the largest group silent.
"My presentation is a roller coaster ride - purposely designed to take these kids on an emotional journey. A journey that leads to a deeper realization that by simply accepting and embracing who they are, they become resilient.
