Sitting in Eataly with Julie Young, founder of DreamMaker 3D, the TIDE Film Festival, The Phenomenal Girls Club, and the $6.99 Per Pound Podcast, she tells me about how much she digs Italian food, even though she’s never been to Italy, the home country of her adopted family. Growing up in a homogenous neighborhood in Rochester New York, feeling and looking different than the rest of her classmates, Julie recalls how disjointed it was to come home to spaghetti and meatballs and American television. Her journey to understanding and loving her own unique identity is full of dynamic twists and turns.
Tune in to hear how Julie learned to push past the fear of her own greatness, and why representation in media is so critical to our cultural context.
