JULIASAYS – Discerning scene musings of the princess of East London!

What do you do if you feel like a freak?! Trying to fit in can work against you as far as I can see. Turn the things you love into your work, live out your dreams. It’s an act of bravery, I know, but the strength of conviction is on your side! Yeah, those are my words of wisdom today… and when you’ve pondered all that, get out and about because there’s a like-minded community ready to embrace you.
