Julia Horvath

Biography pages on websites never really seem to achieve the goals they are intended to which is to give the reader a better understanding of the person behind the writing, but they usually fall short of communicating any real sense of their character.  They read more like a cheesy online dating profile than an insight to their personality. 

With that in mind and in an attempt to keep it short, but yet give you a true reflection of Julia, you should know a few attributes that make her who she is.  Julia is sarcastic, but not rude.  She is forgiving to a fault, generally always in a good mood, loyal to her family and friends and will always make time to be there if you need her.  Her faith is important to her, and she enjoys creative writing and reading; as long as she gets to pick the book.  As for her future, she won’t even attempt to tell you what she wants to do because she has changed her mind numerous time in the past, and she is sure it will change a few more.
