Justin has been described with the following words:  "Fatica has an electric presence in front of groups large and small, showing an emotional range from joy to anger, calmness to fervent pleas. His passionate, if unorthodox tactics have been remarkably successful in reaching teens and young adults. He has keen insights into the struggles of today's young people that will prove eye-opening to your listeners."
