Justin has served in many leadership positions in the NFB and is excited to continue with NABS leadership this term. The wisdom he has accumulated throughout his life comes from a variety of people and places, and Justin is in his second year of a PhD program in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Vermont. His research interests center the relationships between educational institutions and social justice movements, especially our organized blind movement. The outdoors have a special place in Justin’s heart, so he loves spending time fishing, kayaking, and hiking. Luckily, Justin has had the opportunity to live in almost a dozen states so far, each of which contributes uniquely to his identity, so he has been able to participate in some of his favorite hobbies in many new and exciting places.
