Who are you? What do you do?
I´m Julia, 18, studying British and American Literature while trying not to get lost in my thoughts and overanalyze things that happened or could happen.
What or who inspired you to start writing?
Growing up I spent most of my time reading books. At the age of 6 I wanted to become an author and until now this hasn´t changed. I started writing stories and poems when I was 14 and it´s incredible how much I´ve grown since then. I love writing. For me it´s all about being real and expressing my thoughts and feelings, sharing them even though not everybody will understand them. It´s a possibility to tear down the mask you are presenting every day and making yourself vulnerable. (Also I never stop wondering how Charles Bukowski can know how I feel and create nonsense sentences that make just so much sense.)
Tell us one random fact about you.
I wish my parents would have given me another name. If I could choose one, it´d be Effy.
