A True Female Role Model

By Sara O’Donnell, Average Betty

One of Julia’s quotes says, “I had a lack of confidence, which caused me to back down from forcefully stated positions; and I was overly emotional at the expense of careful, ‘scientific’ thought. I was thirty-seven years old and still discovering who I was.”

This sentiment, as well as many other “Julia-isms” gives me strength because I see myself in those words and know if Julia can do it, so can I. Julia Child was not only a culinary legend and pioneer in food television but a true female role model. Strong, intelligent and seemingly fearless, Julia could also hold her liquor. Now that’s a woman to emulate.
