Julia is a junior at Newton North High School. Julia and her mom moved from Wisconsin to Massachusetts this summer, and Julia decorated her new bedroom with anime posters. This school year, Julia wants to learn to sew costumes so that she can dress like a character from My Hero Academia at the next Boston Comic Con. Julia still draws every day and one day she hopes to be an artist. You can find out more about Julia through Chasing Joy, her mom’s blog. (chasingjoy.net)
Julia’s design is raising money for the Sun Prairie chapter of The Penguin Project, an organization which gives young people with special needs the chance to perform in musical theater. It partners artists with disabilities with peer mentors, and together they put together a musical. Julia has been in two Penguin Project productions, School House Rock and the Wizard of Oz.
