JusTme spent a great deal of his youth perfecting his craft as a lyricist and pursuing a career as a rap/hip-hop artist. He now serves as a mindfulness and hip-hop instructor with Mindful Life Project, helping kids use mindfulness and lyrical composition as a form of positive release and expression.

JusTme was introduced to mindfulness by Mindful Life Project’s founder JG Larochette, at a YMCA training event and joined the project soon after.

“Mindfulness puts a person back at the helm of their life’s ship," he says. "It gives them the skill set to take life as it comes moment to moment. Seeing anyone, especially children, maneuver through decisions, thoughts, and emotions successfully is such a beautiful thing to witness."
