Goals & Aspirations: “I want to go to a great college (Stanford, Yale, Notre Dame, and UCLA are my top choices) and double major in anthropology and mathematics with a minor in music. While I’m there, I hope to participate in theater and make a ton of new friends. I just want to be happy doing whatever I do and learn as much as I can before I find that dream occupation.”

Julie Looks Up To: “St. Gianna Beretta Molla, because she is the perfect combination of the modern and traditional woman. She was well-educated and became a pediatrician when most women were stay-at-home mothers, but she was still devoted to her family.”

Part of the Solution: “We have been raised where it is accepted for an individual to do whatever he or she wants, no matter how it may affect others or themselves in the long run. Some children grow up not even knowing where to draw the line between doing what makes you feel good and prudently acting with the future in mind.  I want to be a part of this solution by setting a good example for my peers and being honest about my commitment to be responsible for my actions.”
