Justin "Poetic Justin" Lindberg is a Chicago native with a soul for spoken word. In Chicago, Justin's foundation for poetry started in high school, when he joined his school's speech team to do competitive poetry. Since those humble beginnings, Justin's journey has led him to Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical University as a junior Computer Science major. Away from the keyboard, Justin has developed his lyrical skills and discovered his home as a founding member of Lyrical Disciples Slam Poetry Team, and President of the AAMU Poetry Club. Eager to continue both learning and growing, Poetic Justin's ready to see what his next steps will be.
