Julia has been a member of Interact throughout her high school career, participating in essentially all of their activities. Julia has helped us at the Gala, on Route 1 clean up mornings, and went to RYLA in her sophomore year. The presentation by Jay Scott, father of Alex and director of Alex's Lemonade Stand foundation, at RYLA had a big impact on Julia. Working with other RYLA members, Julia started a successful fundraising campaign of for Alex's Lemonade Stand in the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District elementary schools. 
Julia has been the Editor-in-Chief of the Indian Post for the past 2 years. Julia sees the Indian Post as a platform for the student's voice in school affairs. In this role Julia was able to attend a Columbia University journalism conference, where she learned a lot about operating a newspaper. 
In her sophomore year Julia founded the Unionville Medical Club. This club is for those students considering a career in medicine. Practitioners are brought in to talk with the students about the many career options available. They also do volunteer work at Project Cure and make blankets for children undergoing medical treatment as part of Project Linus. Julia is further exploring her interest in medicine by taking classes in the Allied Health program at the Technical College High School. 
Julia earned the Girl Scouts Gold Award in 2018 by writing, designing, and publishing a cookbook focused on healthy eating on a budget: The Clean Eats Cookbook. The cookbook is distributed through the Kennett Food Cupboard. It is sold online with all the profits going to the food cupboard. You can buy one at This interest in nutrition also comes out through a second effort. Julia donates food to the St. John's Shelter for Men in Philadelphia. 
Julia makes wooden toys that are donated to Toys for Tots just to make sure she is always busy. 
Julia is looking forward to attending Temple University's pre-med program next year.
