My name is Justin Rorick. I am 21 and from Los Angeles. I graduated from Pepperdine University where I received a Bachelors in Sports Administration. This Fall I will be attending St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio, Texas to learn about technology & Artificial Intelligence law. Upon graduating, I plan to implement these skills for Space Force and entrepreneurial/small businesses.
How do you define success?
I believe success is defined at a personal level. Some strive for a financial greatness and others strive for charitable works, but my vision of success falls in between. Helping technology become more accessible to a broader spectrum of individuals will earn money to live comfortably, and protecting people from the negatives using the American legal system will charitably help others.
What are your goals/dreams and where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I see myself in the Air/Space Force JAG Corps to gain experience and serve my country, then after my 4 years of service I will start my own legal firm.
What motivates you?
I am motivated from several angles. My passion for music has driven me to start to travel because of the different festival locations, which has driven me to want a job that keeps me moving around the world. Further, I am motivated by seeing my mom happy, which usually happens when I make others happy.
What is something that you do (a habit or daily practice) that you believe helps you achieve your goals or be productive?
My best daily habit is making my bed. Perhaps the best Ted Talk is one given my an ex-military vet about the importance of making your bed to start the day because it begins your day by completing a task while also starting clean. I highly recommend watching as it might be your best new habit, too.
Who is your inspiration and why?
My inspiration outside of my family is Tom DeLonge. He is not only my favorite musician, but he followed his passions beyond his talents and started his own science organization, To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Life motto or favorite quote?
My favorite quote is “facts don’t care about your feelings,” by Ben Shapiro, because it is commonplace to be clouded by opinions and emotions when it comes to relationships, politics, finances, and just about every aspect of life, but leaning on facts helps avoid a lot of tumultuous situations.
Anything else you want to share? Perhaps a project you’re currently working on or something valuable that you learned from an experience?
Currently, to gear up for law school and because of coronavirus, I have been reading a ton of books.
