I'm Julita (Julie) and I'm part of Focallocal for around 4 years. It's a group of really amazing and positive people - as you know, and I'm proud to be one of them!!
I remember it like today, 4 years ago I heard about Focallocal at work (restaurant/bar), few of the guys who just met on Free Hugs decided to go for a drink. I thought wanna try as well. Soonest I met Andy and other members I just felt like I'm home (I was new to the country at this time). I started going on Free Hugs regularly, then Pillow Fights, Take a Smile, I've got a message for you.... Those are all beautiful ideas making people smile and changing not just their day but also mine!!
Lately started my journey with Video Editing. Focallocal is doing so much but we need to show others through videos what is it all about so I'm learning editing and filming and I'm really excited about it as I feel this is something I would like to do now but also in the future.
Thanks guys and hope to meet more of you very soon
