Okay, so I know that this story is old, but I thought I would share it with you anyways. My name is Elizabeth and I’m from Louisville, Kentucky and I’m 15 years old. When I met Justin, it was September 19th 2009. At the time I was 12 years old and in 7th grade. Every year, a local radio station puts on a “Birthday Bash” and they invite singers to come, usually 5 acts. In 2009, (when the only song Justin had out was ‘One Time’) I found out that he was coming. I was so excited because the tickets are only $5. That year we were going to see Jay Sean, Jessie James, Justin Bieber, and 2 more that I cannot remember. My mom drove me downtown alone since my friend would be late because she had dance. We were driving around for about 10 minutes just trying to find a parking spot and suddenly, I just saw Justin walking with his mom and the girl from OLLG. I screamed and my mom almost side swept a car. It was about 3:30pm and the concert didn’t start until 5. Right after I screamed, my mom found a parking spot, I couldn’t believe it. This kind of thing never happens to me. I hopped out of the car and walked over to him. Okay, just so you know I’m a pretty shy person and I had no idea what to do. I didn’t want to scream and attack him. You will probably think what I did was weird but oh well. So I ran a little faster to catch up with them as my mom locked the car. Before I knew it, they made a right turn and started walking down an alley way that was just the backs of buildings. I looked at my mom and she was like, “Just go and ask him for a picture.” Like I said before, I’m a shy person so I decided just to walk behind them slowly without saying anything. I said “Justin,” but not loud enough for him to hear. After he didn’t respond, I was like, oh well. But then his mom turned around and saw me. She nudged Justin in the arm and then he turned around. We were about 15 or so feet apart and I sort of just looked at him and asked quietly. “…Erm, can I get a picture with you?” Without any hesitation he said sure. My mom still hadn’t caught up so in order to keep a small talk, he asked, “So who else is performing tonight?” I assumed that he already knew this but he didn’t want things to be awkward. I told him and then my mom came with the camera. He put his arm around me and my mom took 3 pictures. In one picture you can tell Justin was reading my shirt. In the picture he is smiling because it said “Lustin’ for Justin” I didn’t come up with this, the radio host did so I decided to put it on there too. I warn you that the pictures are EXTREMELY ugly because I was really awkward and I had recently got a new haircut and she gave me a mullet. Later on we saw him perform live! In this picture I would say I was around 5’2 or 5’3 in 7th grade at age 12 so he was the same height as me when he was 15!
