We asked Justin:

What aspect of your college/university are you most excited about?
Freedom and independence, plus the opportunity to learn about things I am more passionate about.

What advice would you share with soon-to-be high school seniors as they begin their senior year?
Make sure you just take some time to appreciate all you have accomplished and all you have been fortunate enough to experience during high school.

We know the last year and a half of your high school career has been different than what you imagined it would be; what is one positive thing that came out of the experience?
I was able to join an online tutoring service one of my friends helped to create. It helped me find a new love for reaching and helping others.

What is one fun fact about you?
I’m missing a knuckle on my right hand.
