Juzzy's journey to Storm

Justin Olam is from Simbu in the Sinasina Yongomugl district, Papua New Guinea. Moving to Victoria brought a few challenges along with the triumphs, and the Melbourne Storm player shares them here.

In this video interview, Justin responds in both English and Pidgin – his native language – as he talks about his life in Papua New Guinea and the community and cultural challenges he encountered when he first joined Storm.

Hear Justin talk about how important friends and family are to help you overcome challenges, to motivate you to succeed, and of course - to celebrate with when you win!
