We first met Julie in 1998. She was attending University of New York as a music major, and struck up friendships with a culture shocked, love-lorn, California emigrant named Felicity.
Felicity and Julie were close, bonding in the way young college girls often do, by mocking their teacher's hair. (Oh the Irony!)
Julie became entrenched in the incestuous and often angst ridden world of her peers.
She dated Ben, sold fruit for Sean, called Felicity a bitch, played her guitar, found her birth mother, gave a speech on television -- all the standard de rigeur for an all American college student.
Julie has grown, she has changed, she has styled her hair.
She is as vital to the world of UNY as is Richard, Javier, and Meghan.
