Hello! My name is Julia Guerra, and I’m the Vice President of our UChapter. This is my second year here at the University of Texas. I spent my first year majoring in a number of things, from sociology to social work to public relations, but this year I finally settled on a major in biology for pre-pharmacy. I’m an insanely passionate person, which I would say is both a blessing and a curse. I love the arts, particularly the theatre, but I also crave structure and logic. I fell in love with To Write Love On Her Arms back when I was a wee little 8th grader, because it spoke truth to me when I was only ever told lies. TWLOHA instilled the hope in me that kept me alive back then, and keeps me passionate and humble today. My message for TWLOHA members, new and old, would be to laugh as much as possible, ignore embarrassment, love your flaws, and embrace your fears. Every part of your story makes you the unique individual that you are, and that is a beautiful thing.¬†Maya Angelou said, “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”¬†
