#FacesOfAbilityFriday – Justin K

This week on #FacesOfAbilityFriday we’re showcasing Justin K. Justin attends MORA’s Adult Day Services program, where he participates in many different activities, like games (he loves playing Kings in the Corner), art projects, and visiting places in the community. He grew up all over Minnesota, but now calls Chanhassen home. Justin likes to volunteer in his free time and is a regular at Feed My Starving Children. He’s very involved in his church community and plays an active role in a bible study group called Barnabas.

Music is an important piece of Justin’s life. Together with his family, he sings in a performing group called We Three Kings. In addition to singing, Justin also plays the guitar and harmonica, and has been learning how to play the keyboard when he’s at work. When we sat down to talk with Justin, he was eager to tell us about his love for the band Runaway June (their song “Lipstick” is a favorite of his), and how he also enjoys music by Dolly Parton, Bruce Carroll, and bluegrass in general.

Justin loves to travel and does so often with his housemates and friends. Justin has visited Hawaii, West Virginia, Florida, Dollywood, and Branson in recent years, and is planning another trip to Dollywood soon. If he could go anywhere, Justin said he would like to visit US Bank Stadium.

Not many people know this, but Justin is a great dancer! He took a hip hop dance class and learned how to perform to the 90s hit “Macarena” by Los Del Rio. Justin loves trying new things, having new experiences, and learning new skills.
