Hello, I am Justin Young, Peace Coffee’s new intern and bike related affairs specialist, official title "Bike Apostle," "Bike Advocate," "King of the Bike," or what have you. I recently joined the company and am involved with bike events, marketing, e-newsletters, and social media. In addition, I interpret and contribute to brand development, which will ultimately build a stronger bridge between Peace Coffee Racing and Peace Coffee.

I have just completed my undergraduate degree in business administration (B.B.S.) (emphasis in marketing) and minor in psychology at the University Of Wisconsin Green-Bay's Austin E. Cofrin School of Business.

Before college, I grew up in Roseville, MN, and attended Roseville Area High School, graduating in 2005. I was involved with student council, band (played the bassoon), the student newspaper as a photographer, cross country running, cross country skiing, and track. I continued with a lot of extracurricular activities into college, such as playing in the college Symphonic Wind Orchestra during my freshman year, serving on Student Government Association junior and senior year as an environmental affairs representative, getting involved with PEAC (Public and Environmental Affairs Council), participating on the Cross Country Ski Team for four years at UWGB (my first year at Gustavus Adolphus College), and serving as a board member of SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee).

I got involved with Peace Coffee by first being a member of Peace Coffee Racing as one of the few endurance riders, mainly road and triathlons. I volunteered a bit with Mel Meegan and Angelica Cox Vazquez at the Minnesota State Fair and Art-A-Whirl and got to know them pretty well. Then before I knew it I had an internship with Peace Coffee!

I look forward to seeing our Peace Spokes readers at various events around the state. Don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to me!
