In her work, Julia is dedicated to building a world that sets everyone up for success. “My learning disability helped me to advocate for myself and not always follow the common path,” she said.
Julia is the founder and CEO of Home from College, a digital platform providing students with a starting point for their professional careers. “The college system is broken, leaving millions of students unsure of where to begin, shape, and develop their professional identity,” she said. “They need a home that puts students first to uncover their passions, work with brands they love, and develop a professional profile that better reflects who they are as people.”

As an exceptional Gen Z’er using her voice for good, Julia was honored for her commitment to Unification through The ConversationaLIST. In her work, she flattens the playing field so students from different backgrounds can achieve success.
Julia suggests those looking to find their voice should talk to everyone in order to find their direction. “Be grateful and keep close to all the relationships that are meaningful to you and continue to support you,” she said.
Looking ahead to the future, Julia hopes to continue growing Home From College. She hopes that she’ll be remembered as a “good person, with a lot of creativity.”
Julia resonates with The Conversationalist’s mission because she thinks Gen Z is reshaping the way we share info and we need a platform that supports that. She’s excited to learn more from other members of the community.
For Julia, a unified world is one where people listen when others talk and emphasizes compromise and communication.“The world is at a tremendous shifting point, and Gen Z is the most adaptable to seeing a new way,” she said.

To break open her echo chamber, Julia focuses on collaboration. She’s interested in having conversations around equality, fashion, technology, and how that intersects with psychology and people.
In navigating difficult conversations, Julia starts by asking questions to get to the root of the other person’s perspective. “People have good hearts and look at the world from a new vantage point to see opportunity,” she said.
