Julia Scott
Julia Scott (’19) is from St. Albans Town, Vermont. She lives with her parents Jennifer and Daniel and younger brother Owen. Her brother will be attending BFA in 5 academic years.

Scott was exposed to the idea of Journalism at an early age, as her father Daniel majored in Journalism. She learned about Journalism through her father. She has always enjoyed writing about news related topics, but this is her first year involved in a journalism class!

Scott is also involved in the Drama program and the Math League here at BFA.

She also has always been very intrigued by theater. She was exposed to theater at a very young age. When she was younger her mother worked at the Saint Michael's Playhouse in the Box Office. She would watch the performances as her mother was working.

Scott performed in her first play when she was six years old. She performed as the Fairy Godmother’s little helper at the Saint Michael's Playhouse. Scott was also part of the drama program at her sending school, SATEC.

Scott also got involved in playwriting at BFA. She had always liked to write but had never written a play.

Scott’s Freshman English Teacher introduced her to the Young Playwrights Festival, which exists to provide Young Vermonters an opportunity to discover their true voice through playwriting.

The writers are given three weeks to write a play and one week for editing, before having to send their piece into the Young Playwrights Festival in Burlington.   Scott’s first play, “Secrets”, was written to be a comedy with both tension and drama to make it fun. This play was selected to be performed as a cold reading at the Young Playwrights Festival.

Outside of school, Scott enjoys reading, writing and drawing. Scott likes to read informative and historical texts. She has always loved to draw and her artistic abilities continue to improve. She likes to draw people, fictional characters, and those that she creates herself.

Scott’s biggest influence is Emma Goldman, who was an anarchist political activist and writer in the 1900s. Scott relates to and appreciates Goldman’s values and determination toward women’s rights and workers’ rights during this time.

Scott describes herself as stubborn because she is determined and unwilling to give up. She also describes herself as enthusiastic because she is passionate and invested in everything that she can be.
