Building Community Together

Alumni Spotlight: Justin Zepeda

LA’s BEST changed the trajectory of my life through sports, and for that, I’m forever grateful.

Justin attended LA’s BEST at Sylmar Elementary along with his four siblings. Justin wasn’t initially interested in sports but that all changed when he joined LA’s BEST. Justin proudly asserts that his time in LA’s BEST fostered a strong work ethic and intrinsic motivation that helped him grow into the person he is today. 

After receiving a football scholarship to college, Justin earned a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and recently relocated to New York City where he works as the Senior Product Marketing Manager at FanDuel. He also helps small businesses, working towards his ultimate long-term goal of establishing a nonprofit dedicated to bolstering minority-owned businesses across the US.
