Hi there, I’m Julia! I’m a senior journalism major at American University and an editorial intern at 1776, a startup incubator in DC, as part of the AU School of Communication Dean’s Internship Program. Previously, I was an online editorial intern at New York Magazine and wrote for their newest vertical, “The Science of Us.” I love feature writing, copy editing and all things digital. My friends often say that I am “good at the Internet.”
On campus, I’ve written sex columns for The American Word Magazine (one of which scored me a Late Night with Seth Meyers shout-out) and articles for HerCampus.com. I served as student body Vice President, and I’m a member of Phi Sigma Sigma.
(I also started a minor Internet phenomenon called Swipe For Swipes that was covered by TIME, The Washington Post, USA Today and others. It was so weird.)
My favorite things to write about are things that make people think and/or feel something–particularly sex, psychology, gender issues, tech, contemporary culture and cool people. My goal is to work in the features department of a magazine or online publication after I graduate.
I graduate this spring, and I’m on the lookout for a job. Let me know if you want to chat!
