Live in Real Life

About Live in Real Life
Riverton City’s award-winning Live in Real Life program was launched to combat the alarming trend of anxiety, depression and other mental, physical and emotional health challenges increasingly found amongst the teenage population. The program provides diverse educational opportunities focused on critical issues related to mental health, physical health, safety and other challenges that teens face on a regular basis. Events are hosted twice per year and are open to teenagers, parents and other interested individuals in the greater south Salt Lake County area. Live in Real Life events routinely attract hundreds of attendees. The event is co-sponsored by Jordan School District and Riverton High School.

About Justin Osmond

justin-osmond-photoJustin Osmond, the second son of Merrill and Mary Osmond, was born with a 90% hearing loss that went undiagnosed until he was two years old. Because he was two years behind his peers, he had to show intense dedication and mental and physical exertion to chase his dreams and aspirations. After 12 years of intense speech and listening therapy, he can speak with passion and hear with conviction.

Despite the inevitable, Justin pressed forward with a perfect brightness of hope and a love for all humanity. He learned to play the violin, viola, piano and drums and has received numerous awards, including the prestigious sterling scholarship in music, academic scholarships, honorary achievements, as well as many championships in soccer, football, basketball and track. He also went on to receive his Eagle Scout and graduated Summa Cum Laude with his MBA in 2018.

Justin currently runs the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund, a charity that helps deaf and hard-of-hearing children around the world with the gift of hearing. He also operates a production company called O2 Events & Productions. His focus is to help motivate and be a bridge builder, which encompasses the needs for the deaf, hard-of-hearing and their families all around the world.

Justin met the love of his life, Kristi Osmond, in November 2012, and the two were married in October 2013. They have since adopted two beautiful little girls named Emma and Eve. They live in southern Utah and enjoy camping, fishing, being outdoors, going out to movies and eating out at Chili’s.
