Note from Julia

I’m Julia, a 19 year old girl from Frankfurt, Germany, the new volunteer at BCR. I am attending a vocational college in a city close to Frankfurt, to become a foreign language secretary. I’m learning Spanish, English and some French, which is lots of fun and opens many doors to different worlds, cultures and nations.

Travelling is a huge part of my life and even though I am more the quiet type of person, I definitely love seeing as much of our amazing world as possible. This is my first time outside Europe and I’m really enjoying it. It was pretty overwhelming at first, because I had some trouble getting to St Pauls, but everything worked in the end.

Part of my apprenticeship is a 1,5 month long internship and I had to decide whether to go to an office in Germany and do paperwork and stuff, or go anywhere abroad in order to improve my language skills. The decision was pretty easy, since I’m not really an office-person. I’m not going to work as a secretary (hopefully I won’t), because I would love to become a teacher for English and philosophy one day, that would be cool.
A few months ago I got in contact with Alana and decided to apply for becoming a volunteer, which was the best decision I made and it was just amazing that everything worked out. The first cat I met was Snicker, the famous handsome Snicker, who stole my heart within a heartbeat. In Germany I have three cats, one dog, two rabbits and fish, but I am definitely a cat-person, no doubt. I’ve fallen in love with every single cat, but who couldn’t? Right now I’m spending most of my time with Charity, she is such a sweet little girl and perhaps I get the chance to steal her when no one is looking!


Some of you have probably already seen me doing boxes and tours, which I did really awkwardly, but I promise that my English is usually better and I need to get used to being seen by all the amazing fans and supporters of BCR. As I said, I am more the quiet person. You will probably see me a good few times during the next weeks and I will be there during open houses and the jump (I’m undisclosed whether to jump or not – we will see!). Can’t wait to meet you all!


Note from Alana:  Right now Julia is also helping us lots on our social media.   If you would like to come spend time working doing an internship,  please email me
