Justin Zoradi is the founder and CEO of These Numbers Have Faces, a social enterprise investing in the next generation of African changemakers. In 2008, from the couch of his apartment, Justin scraped together a few thousand dollars to help one friend from South Africa attend university. What started small now provides higher education loans, leadership training, and entrepreneurship investments to thousands of young people throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
Justin is the author of Made for These Times: A Start-Up Guide to Calling, Character, and Work That Matters (Zondervan, August '2018), a hope-filled blueprint to rise up to the challenges of today and build a life of purpose. He believes ordinary people have great power to impact the lives of others and shares this message through blogging at justinzoradi.com, contributing to RELEVANT magazine, and as a regularly featured blogger on Donald Miller’s Storyline blog.
Justin holds a BA in communication studies from Westmont College and an MA in international conflict resolution from Portland State University. An obsessive soccer fan and weekend landscaper, he lives in Portland, Oregon, with his lovely wife Trisha, daughter Josephine, and their backyard chickens.
