34/365: Julie

Ask any eight year old girl what she wants to be and she'll probably say marine biologist. It goes without saying, and it also goes without saying that the majority won't actually bother to follow through with it. Julie did. She had to, after her other dream career fell through.

After placing bronze and within the top ten at a couple of international competitions for canoe racing, she was not allowed to compete at the Olympics because the IOC doesn't want women to race canoes like men do. We'll never know what she would have achieved.

She brings a huge amount of enthusiasm to pretty much everything she does, which made her a blast to work with.
