Julia Dixon was born and raised in a suburb of Akron, Ohio. She graduated in 2011 from The University of Akron where she received a Bachelor’s degree in English, with minor concentrations in Spanish and Professional Writing. Julia was raped in her dorm her first week at Akron, completely changing the course of her college experience. The subsequent events of that crime, which ended in court with a plea of “guilty” a year and a half later, lead her to realize the importance of speaking out in light of injustice and fighting for the rights of others. In 2014, Julia filed a Clery complaint against her university for mishandling her case and that of several other students. She hopes that creating dialogue will remove the stigmas of assault, allowing education and understanding to flow through our nation to the people who most need it.
