Justin Pinn on Standing Among Leaders Who Inspire Me
Justin Pinn serves as Director of Strategic Initiates for Teach for America Miami-Dade. Justin believes that his mission and calling in life is “to extend the ladder on which he climbs.” As a first-generation college graduate and Black leader, he knows first-hand that it takes more than determination to make it on an unlevel playing field – and that is his life’s work. “The same folks I used to read about and use as inspiration, I now get to be that person.”
