Skylar T. for Macy's!
first came to Julie Nation when she was only 8 years old. A quiet
child, who often thought of herself as unattractive, unsure of herself,
and completely unaware of any special talents that she possessed. Under
the nurturing guidance of Julie Nation and her staff, the inner beauty,
and a very healthy self esteem started to grow within this child. 'It
was like watching a blossom unfold into a beautiful flower,' says her
parents, Scott and Deborah Lumry.
Under Julie's articulate guidance Christa developed confidence enough
to participate in one of Julie Nation's Showcases, in front of many
well known National Talent Agencies. Christa was selected for 'call
backs' from 4 major talent agencies, and made the decision to sign on
with Marla Dell in San Francisco. Christa went on to do print, runway, fit modeling, television, and radio commercials. (The Gap, Mervyn's, Macys, etc.) Not only did she excel in a modeling career, she won
two California State School Speech Meets, and a first place in State Science fairs.
In her early teen years, she joined an acting company that performed in
public schools. In one years time she had given public speeches to over
24,000 students in age groups ranging from middle schools up to
University College age students. Her speeches were on the topic of
morals, encouraging students to be true to their selves, and resisting
peer pressure - When Christa was only 13 years old she entered college,
and graduated from Arizona University at the age of 18 years old. -
Christa now 27 years old has taught Autistic children. Owns a business. And travels the world.
There is so much more to Julie Nation's classes than her class titles
imply. Students do not simply learn how to be a model or actor. Julie
teaches her students that beauty, and talent FIRST comes from within
one's self. Julie didn't change young Christa's appearance, she brought
out her flamboyant personality, and it was that personality, (not so
much her looks) that caused the talent agents to select her.
I cannot say enough GOOD about Julie Nation, and her Staff, and highly
recommend this amazing academy. Thank You Julie for *ALL* the lives
your have transformed in such a positive manner."
- Deborah, parent of Christa L.
