About Krystian:

Krystian is a 22-year-old from Morgantown, West Virginia, currently attending West Virginia University in her senior year studying broadcast journalism. Krystian founded her non-profit organization, Shining S.C.A.R.S., at the age of 14. S.C.A.R.S. stands for finding strength, building character for self-acceptance to rise above the stigma. Overcoming stigmas related to all scars is at the heart of this unique organization. The passion behind Shining S.C.A.R.S. stems from Krystian’s own personal battle and experiences resulting from visible scars beginning at the age of 4. Her surgeries left behind several large scars and she endured first-hand the trials and self-esteem issues associated with taunts and bullying because of those scars. Her nonprofit works to gather funding to provide her children’s book Shining Scars, to children’s hospitals and recovery centers treating patients relating to burns, cleft palate, spina bifida and cancer recovery and others. By creating a positive and character building organization it is Krystian’s goal to build an informative community aiding in the healing process.

Episode 32 features a young and impressive entrepreneur by the name of Justin Lafazan.  From an earlier age, Justin saw his Dad struggle through the 2008 Recession as a Mortgage Banker and vowed to pave his own way in life so that he never had to be impacted by other peoples decisions.  That drive has led him to create a company while still in high school, write a book, and start a 2nd company to bring together young entrepreneurs from all over the place.  Oh and he is only 22 years old!

I truly enjoyed this interview with Justin and excited for you all to listen in!
