Julia also enjoys going to the symphony, attending concerts, and volunteering in her community. Julia says that her favorite thing to do is spend time with her family, boyfriend, and friends.
Julia says that being an athlete leader means everything to her because she wants athletes’ voices to be heard. Julia wants to share her experiences with others, and she wants the world to see the abilities of athletes. As an athlete leader she wants to spread awareness about inclusion and to advocate for others. Julia wants to bring unified leadership, sports, and programming to schools in her community.
Julia’s grant plan is to launch an in-person campaign to raise awareness about inclusion and educate people without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) about inclusive practices. She will do this through presentations. Julia’s project will be based on Unified Leadership training of people without IDD in schools and will include athletes sharing their stories and experiences to help attendees understand the importance of inclusion.
