Justin M. Cook was born in Camden, New Jersey and raised in the neighboring township of Pennsauken. He received his BA in Public Relations from Hampton University in 2008. When Justin isn’t assisting with running the daily operations of his family’s medical transportation company, he’s preparing for a 5K, or running the non-profit organization he founded in the Spring of 2013 after Camden, New Jersey was ranked the most dangerous and impoverished city in the country.
Justin serves as the President and volunteer director for Project L.I.F.T. (Leaving Impressions For Tomorrow) Inc, an organization with the mission to uplift the youth in Camden, New Jersey through Scholarship, Enrichment and Service. Within the last year the organization has received tons of support and recognition through their numerous service projects, fundraising events and programs such as their literacy initiative, Breakfast and a Story.
Justin plans to continue to working on expanding Project L.I.F.T. and leaving as many impressions for tomorrow as possible.
