Unexpectedly, Justina ended up in prison (… as an instructor). She taught songwriting and played rock music with over fifty incarcerated men at Dade and Everglades Correctional Institutions through non-profit organization, Exchange for Change. During the summer, Justina builds confidence with young songwriters at Interlochen Arts Camp, an intensive three-week program.
As an adjunct professor, Justina shares songwriting wisdom at the University of Miami, where she obtained her Master’s Degree in Media Writing and Production. She has toured the country with her original music. She loves leftovers, Larry David, and alliterations. And llamas.
