Julie loves animals, she says she has always wanted to have animals “living in San Francisco I never had that opportunity” 4-H helped Julie fulfill her desire of having animals, she currently has a pony, chicken, guinea pigs, dog and a cat. She has also had goats and rabbits.
“4-H creates lifelong family friends, it's great to see other volunteers who have stayed volunteers even though their children have left 4-H.” She loves feeling that she “makes a difference in a child's life” she says. “I just want to be there for the children, it's in my heart.” Julie's fondest memory of 4-H is “working with her children on their projects going through both the struggles, successes and learning life lessons together.”
Julie is proud to be part of 4-H she believes it “allows the opportunity to explore different careers and improve life skills such as public speaking, financial skills, setting and evaluating goals, critical thinking. These skills help them be successful and allow them to fulfill their passion which is one of the best feelings.”
Thank you Julie for everything that you do! You are making a difference in this community, country and world.
