Just like Taylor, our first Teen Seen, I also dance with Juliane. She’s amazing and I LOVE to watch her tell a story as she moves across the floor. She’s interesting, passionate and funny, but you’ll figure that out in just a moment…
Hi Kim!! Well my name is Juliane and I’ve lived here in Beacon my whole life. I grew up with the two best parents imaginable, my older sister and of course, my two pets. (I’m a huge animal lover!!) I’m seventeen years old and cannot wait to finally make my transformation into adulthood on June 20th. I’m a senior and am still hearing back from multiple colleges to date, but Manhattanville as of now remains my top choice for admission this fall where I will study communications in art/media/journalism.

I had started a blog before to get some of my ideas and writings out of my head and onto a site for others to see, but have recently decided to detatch from it. Luckily though, I have had the opportunity to be inspired by the right people to stick with my aspirations and never give up on something I love, which always gives me hope that one day I could make a difference in this big world!
*Since we started this interview Juliane decided to give blogging another shot. I’m so excited she believes in Second Chances.
Wow-I love these interviews. I thought I knew how talented you are and then poof-you sneak in a half dozen miscellaneous talents that I knew nothing about. LOL!
Congrats on Manhattanville. I remember those days, torn between soaking up every minute of being a senior and wanting desperately to reinvent myself. It’s an exciting time.
This is a weird question, but what do you want to change about yourself when you start over? What do you hope never changes?

Writer’s love to read. It’s fun and it helps us to be a better writer. What are you reading?
Reading? To be honest, I am not as interested in reading as I am in writing. Currently I am not reading anything, but have finished a few books so far this school year. However, I do love authors like Mitch Albom, Sparks, Lowry, and Nicole Krauss, who write stories with strong moral messages that can relate to situations I may have faced. I’m hoping to explore the world of reading more this summer and expand my knowledge of it.
I loved interviewing you and sharing you with the world. Don’t forget you can find Juliane on her blog…Second Chances. See you at dance on Tuesday. *grin*
