WATERLOO (KWWL) -

"It's OK to make a mistake. You are awesome."

JusTme (Timothy Scott, Jr.) is in Waterloo, teaching kids through the power of music and dance. 

The hip-hop artist and mindfulness instructor flew in from California's Bay Area.

He's performing at Lincoln Elementary today.

In a press release, it says, "Since 2012, he has been spreading love and insight on mindfulness and well-being. JusTme started working with K-12 students in the West Contra Costa Unified School District of Richmond, California bringing students and their families positivity, mindful practices and wellbeing through his coined term "mindful hip-hop."

KWWL asked JusTme what he hopes the students got out of his lessons today. 

He says, "I hope they got some smiles, some sunshine, and I hope grabbed these tools and are able to use them going forward so they can be better adults, and better at being adults and running things than we are today."
