Julia McPherson

Hometown: Wilmington, North Carolian

Major: Rhetoric & Media Studies


I was born and raised in the US South, but decided college was the time to do something completely different than go to the huge state school all of my friends were going to attend. My family jokes that ” Julia flung herself as far away as she could without gettin’ her feet wet,” and I suppose that is true, but I’ve been eagerly exploring all the L&C community and the PNW has to offer since! Growing up in and around often-misunderstood intersections of struggle has motivated me to steer my future towards a goal of making people care about things they should care about, so I’m majoring in Rhetoric & Media Studies, minoring in Ethnic Studies, and taking advantage of service opportunities as they come my way.
