Julie Helen – A letter to my sixteen year old self

A woman sits in her kitchen in her wheelchair. She holds a toddler in her lap. They are both looking at the camera. She lightly rests her head on top of his and smiles at the camera.

Dear Julie, This letter has sent me on a journey of rediscovery that spans 20 years. Imagine, where you are now, enjoying Transition Year, fresh off the stage of Oklahoma, having done one Young Scientist Project and about to do another, in the blink of an eye, you’ll be a graduate, an employee, a wife and a mother.
