The Red Ledger

Julia Vastano
In 7th grade Julia signed up for newspaper class on a total whim. To this day she isn’t exactly sure what landed her in Mrs. Sanders 7th period newspaper class. She kind of just went with the flow (which is actually very peculiar for Julia because she usually plans everything at least 3 years in advance) Now she is one of the Editor-In-Chiefs of The Red Ledger so that happened and it’s cool and she likes the gig.

Extra Curriculars are a huge part of Julia’s life. So much so she refuses to list them out here for fear of becoming explicitly boring. Her hobbies include dancing, tripping, falling, flailing and anything of that general nature. She wants to major in history or political science and go to law school eventually. Her fantasy career would be a paleontologist because dinosaurs are awesome, but she is more realistically looking into being a lawyer (which yes, she does find to be equally exciting.)

Other than all of that, Julia is so super duper excited for the 2015-2016 Red Ledger staff. She is very confident that this year the online news source will kick some booty at something and be really informative. She is even more pumped to work along side the old married couple (also known as the other two amazing Editor-In-Chiefs of The Red Ledger) Jillian and Hallie.
