Building a Legacy & Redefining Your Normal with Alexis and Justin Black

February 1, 2021

Happy Valentine's Day and Black History Month from the A. Gilman Podcast!

It’s all about #couplegoals this month as we have Justin and Alexis Black (South Korea, 2017 and Ecuador, 2018) joining us on the podcast. In this episode, hear Justin and Alexis discuss their experience growing up in the foster care system, studying abroad as inspiration for their careers, and pursuing professional success. Listen in for their best tips for entrepreneurial success after undergrad and what’s next for them. 

Before becoming authors, Justin and Alexis created The Scholarship Expert group, where they connect children in the foster system and first-generation students to financial scholarships. The two of them are also alumni of Western Michigan University and the Gilman Scholarship program and recent authors of their new book Redefining Normal: How Two Foster Kids Beat The Odds And Discovered Healing, Happiness, And Love.
