We tell kids they can be whatever they want to be when they grow up, but how often do we provide them with real life examples? How are we showing them that anything really is possible?
One way is by allowing your students to see your path to living out your dream and purpose. Justin Milburn is doing just that. He is a native Houstonian who is teacher by day and Christian rapper by night. Justin, aka Iam Justified, is a product of the Houston Independent School District and graduate of Clark Atlanta University where he studied Mass Media Arts. During his time as a television host, Iam Justified was able to interview some of the greats like Stevie Wonder and Bishop Desmond Tutu.
As exciting as these experiences were, Iam Justified knew there was a greater calling for him that he couldn't yet see. "I was battling depression," he shares, " and began writing journals filled with songs to express myself." Music was his outlet. While rebuilding his relationship with Christ, Iam Justified started to write songs about how to overcome seemingly never ending sad days.
"I'm healed, set free, and delivered," he says. Iam Justified wants others to be free as well.
