Recognizable me: Hey fam! I’m Julia Spee, but all you kids can call me Jules. I’m a strong and independent lady from the one and only Emerald City – Seattle, Washington. And with that being said, yes coffee is my lifeblood, yes it does rain a lot there, and yes go Seahawks, Mariners, Sounders, and Sonics (we’re getting them back real soon I just know it). I’m proud to say I stem from a group of misfits brought together by adoption. My siblings are from China and Laos and I am from Colombia. We seem to tolerate each other. It works.
I live and breathe sports. For serious. Football is my favorite thing on the planet (right before anything with coconut) and college sports tend to excite me the most.
Where I’m at: If you can’t find me in Boulder, you’ll find me in Denver at the Pepsi Center. I work as a marketing intern for the Nuggets and Avalanche. If you’re a fan of either team let me know and I can try to get you tickets for a game! It’s a pretty good gig considering sports marketing has been my dream job since like, forever. Actually my first dream job was to be a sports agent but when I found out that it mostly consists of hiring high class strippers and I thought ehhhh better not.
I am a Junior at the Leeds school studying marketing and going to get a certificates in Business of sports and TAM, or technology arts and media. I absolutely love the TAM program and am considering bumping it up to a minor. I love that technology has the potential to do so much and want to keep learning how to appropriately utilize the amazing power.
This summer you can find me around this neck of the woods studying and stressing over the business of sports certificate. So let’s kick it if you’re around town!
What I want: Quick side note: I’m a bit odd. I’m shy and outgoing all at the same time. You’ll probably understand what I mean after I start working with you all. I really love learning and cannot get enough of it. A pun can make me laugh until I cry. It doesn’t even have to be clever. So yes, I too have to take this class to gradjiate and stuff, but I’m really looking forward to bettering myself and rounding out my skill set! I’ve honestly never been a strong writer so I’m ready to buckle down and take it on considering this will most likely be my last writing class ever. I ultimately want to be confident enough in my work that people feel it won’t be a waste of their time to read.
I cannot express how much I have grown in coming to college. I am the first person from my school district to come to CU since ’09 and am so proud of that title. I couldn’t picture myself anywhere else but this beautiful town. There is so much opportunity surrounding this area and, I know everyone says this, but the vibe is just always so great. I think it’s hard not to succeed here because it’s hard not to surround yourself with amazing people.
Where to find me: My social media presence is out there but it’s nothing fancy. A while ago I looked at the activity on my Facebook realize somebody would probably think I was a young mother of 2… lots of articles about child psych, at home DIYs, healthy recipes and local news… So I cleaned it up and now hardly even touch the thing. Anyways, my insta is a little livelier if that’s more your style.
I tend not to have a lot of free time lately, which is sometimes sad, but I know is totally worth it in the long run! When I do get free time, I’ll be binging Hulu or Netflix while simultaneously online shopping with the very little money I have.
All in all, I’m excited to get to know all of you! We’re going be homies, I can tell!
