Justin Osmond Opens Up About Life In The Osmond Family And Never Giving Up On Dreams
Justin Osmond will be the Keynote Speaker on Thursday, October 22, 2015, during the St. George Book Festival week. He will be talking about his memoir “Hearing with My Heart,” and about being the son second son of Merrill Osmond, the lead singer of the world-renowned Osmonds.
Justin was diagnosed at the age of 2 with a 90% hearing loss and after 12 years of intense speech and listening therapy, he can now speak with passion and through modern-day technology, hear with conviction. Because he was a couple years behind his peers, he has shown through intense dedication, mental and physical exertion, that nothing can stop him from going after his dreams.
Despite living with a profound hearing loss, Justin pressed forward with a perfect brightness of hope and love for all humanity. Even after being told by teachers and professionals that he would never play a musical instrument, he went on to play the violin, viola, piano, and drums.  He has received numerous awards such as the prestigious Sterling scholarship in music, academic scholarships, honorary achievements, and many athletic titles in soccer, football, basketball, and track. He is also proud to represent the Boy Scouts of America as an Eagle Scout, and he currently has his Master in Business Administration.
Due to Justin’s desire to help everyone that may be struggling with hearing loss, he launched the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund in honor of his late grandmother Olive. As Founder and CEO of the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund, Justin has one goal: to bring music to the ears of men, women and children living with hearing loss around the world. Justin's unique message inspires and motivates his audiences, and he lives every day by his personal motto: “I may have a hearing loss, but that hearing loss does not have me.”
Fans and book lovers can meet Justin during the St. George Book Festival’s Humanity Outreach through Literacy to be held Thursday, October 22nd at DXTAC, located at 610 S. Airport Road in St. George. This free event will feature speaker Justin Osmond at 6 pm followed by Jonathan Diaz at 7 pm. Diaz’s topic will be on the “Anything Can Be Project: True Heros.”
