Show Notes

Julie Harper

Julie Harper is a writer, musician and founder of the online sisterhood I AM HER and is currently based in Nashville, TN. She is a divorced single mother of triplets known for her authentic voice and fighting spirit. She said, “even at rock bottom and the decade it’s taken me to crawl my way out, I’ve always had big dreams and a vision for myself, for my children and for women. And every dream that I have for us points to freedom. Freedom to choose. Freedom to create. Freedom to express who we are without selling out to those who choose to abuse their power. Freedom to leave or to stay without fear. Freedom to live on our own terms in every precious part of our lives and extend that freedom to every human being who doesn’t have it yet. And I don’t always know exactly how I’m going to do my part, I just know that I am. Somehow. Some way. Because I am unwavering in my ‘why.’ My why has always been freedom because without it we have nothing. Freedom is my North Star.”
