About me

Location Florida, United States
Introduction Hello, all!!!! My name is Julia, and I'm a Christian homeschooled student who has been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ. I'm an aspiring writer, and intend to attend Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia to pursue a degree in journalism. I play the violin, viola, mandolin, and fool around on my piano. I love music and poetry. I have always loved to write; I started after attending a writing class for about 8 weeks when I was ten, and have yet to stop. I love the english language and the beautiful gift of words almost as much as I do the people that I'm writing for. I'm a girl of many interests. I love to make things, especially gifts for people, and I hope to be blessed enough to be able to work on the missions field after college. I love Fox News and working with kids. My absolute favorite thing to do is to make people smile. My main goal in my life can be summed up by the first entry in the West Minster Shorter Catechism: "The chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever." Be blessed!!!
