Julia Clausen
Data & Impact Associate, VISTA

Julia moved to Chicago in August of 2017 after graduating with a BA in English from the University of California, Irvine. Originally from the part of central California where most of America's carrots and almonds are grown, she thought she was going to move to a big city and work in publishing. However, after working several jobs in writing, publishing, and education, she found her way to 826CHI where she can do all of them at once! It's her new favorite place. She loves being connected through her work to the community and to the students who are discovering the power of writing. Weird facts: She has eaten the same cereal every morning for the last three years, and she arranges her closet by color.
