A Star in the Making

Julia is an aspiring actress and she is actively pursuing her dreams.

She was recently selected to go to Adelaide with DADAA and headed off in October 2015.  Julia enjoys spending time with her partner, family and friends and will enthusiastically tell you “my best thing I like to do is horse riding.”

The leadership program with DADAA, a not-for-profit promoting opportunity in the arts for people with disabilities, is only one example of the dynamic life Julia leads. Living independently in her own Subiaco apartment, Julia’s parents couldn’t be prouder, “they have enjoyed watching me do something with my life”.

“I have nearly got everything I have always wanted in my life.”

Julia’s association with EDGE started when she was a teenager, “when they gave me the work experience at Nike many years ago and it was fantastic.” Over the last 15 years Julia has gained experience in both retail and office assistant roles. The success and security found in her current administration role is evidence of the great range of skills Julia has acquired. For the past 3 years Julia has held an administration assistant role with Auzcorp.

Julia can now easily support her lifestyle and pursue her dreams in acting. “I have always wanted to be on Home and Away so I am trying to get some agencies in to come and watch me perform.” In the meantime, Julia is pretty happy. “I have nearly got everything I have always wanted in my life.”
