On BOSS and the CARA awards ceremony, Julia says: “For the greater part of a decade I have sat quietly at my computer and pressed “publish” to award the brightest stars in our artform. I am so excited to look these incredible talented people in the face and say “Congratulations!” and “Thank you for what you have done; thank you for sharing your talent with us!” I can’t wait to be starstruck by the fabulous list of attendees at BOSS, during and after all of the awards are given out!”
