- Justin Watkins was allergic to many things since he was a child and was also diagnosed with chronic severe asthma. He had to use inhalers, daily medicines and the nebulizer three times a day. Embarrassed about his health issues, he became shy and reclusive, often trying to find excuses to go to the bathroom to use his inhaler without anyone noticing. When he was in the fifth grade, his family moved to Indonesia due to his father's job. While initially exited to visit a new country, he found it difficult to make new friends there. However, he eventually made three close friends, but they soon became interested in sports. While his health issues had gotten better at this point, his growth was delayed because of all the medications, which made it difficult for him to participate in sports. He lost his friends again after his father was transferred back to the US when he was in the 10th grade, following which they settled in Northern California. He had his final asthma attack during his senior year, for which he had to be rushed to the hospital right after taking the SAT examination. Nevertheless, he did well in the examination and started college with a clean slate, leaving behind his health issues.Personal Life
