I am Julie. I am a unique thinker. I am a mad woman made good. Quirky? Eccentric? Manic? Yes, all of the usual stereotypes. But I dream impossible dreams and create them on stage. I make mischief that makes others think. I create platforms that highlight excluded stories from the periphery of our communities, shedding light on uncomfortable truths and show-casing the extraordinary talents of forgotten voices. My body is scarred in unique configurations, that so far only my surgeons (all four) and myself have witnessed. I carry a unique map upon my body. I dream of peaceful solutions to the destructive urges of my fellow humans. I dream of stillness at the heart of the storm. These dreams are not unique and I am thankful that so many of you unique humans out there share them too.
