Julie is wholeheartedly connected to her writers and this project. She gave me trust and time when I needed it and supported and celebrated me along the way. She helped me get it out there!!!
Having Julie as a mentor, cheerleader and now, a friend, I would like to know that more women would be willing to take this chance, to not be afraid and to know that anything is possible. Julie knew I could write and with her encouragement, I wrote about my life and felt stronger as I went along. Now I am seeking out other brave women to find Julie and write their stories. How lucky am I?
