Hi there, I’m Julia! I’m a senior journalism major at American University looking to start a career in digital magazine journalism. Previously, I was an online editorial intern at New York Magazine and wrote for their newest section, “The Science of Us.” I also interned at 1776, a startup incubator in DC, as part of the AU School of Communication Dean’s Internship Program. 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 also started a minor Internet phenomenon called Swipe For Swipes that was covered by TIME, The Washington Post, USA Today and others. I previously served as student body Vice President, and I’m a member of Phi Sigma Sigma.
My favorite topics to write about are the ones that make people think deeply and feel something–particularly women’s rights, sex, psychology and contemporary culture. I particularly love interviewing unique people. I think everyone has a story to tell, and I want to be the one to tell it.
I’m on the lookout for an entry-level job at a magazine or online publication. Want to chat? You can get in touch with me here!
