Founder of Motivational Project

As a soon-to-be college graduate from Pepperdine University, I am currently on a journey of self-discovery and continuous improvements to achieve my life goals. I was born and raised in Paris, France, and decided to travel across the globe to pursue my college education and my dreams in Los Angeles, California. I found a passion for inspiring and motivating people to see beyond their limits and pursue their biggest dreams, and therefore decided to create the Motivational Project, a platform built around three driving forces - Purpose, Passion, Perseverance - for ambitious individuals who are constantly striving to find inspiration and learn tactical tools to achieve their goals. Through the blog posts I write and the profiles I highlight, my purpose is to share with you the mindset and steps that others and I believe are essential to achieve the great results we want. If we can do it, you can do it too.
Let’s embark on this journey toward success together!

About: About

"My ultimate goal is to be an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and author. Five years from now, I hope to have started my own business and written my very first book. I see myself giving motivational speeches at universities, conferences, and other special events with the ultimate purpose of inspiring and motivating others to believe in themselves and go after their dreams. "

My name is Julia Strouk, and I am a 20-year-old girl with lots of ambition.

Originally from Paris, France, I decided to move to Los Angeles, California, to pursue my studies. I am currently a senior college student at Pepperdine University majoring in Integrated Marketing Communications. In Spring 2021, I will be pursuing a Master's in Global Business with a Leadership & Managing Organizational Change concentration.

I decided to create the Motivational Project because I want to encourage people to go after their dreams. I have personally worked so hard to get where I am right now, and I learned that anything is possible if we really want and work for it. 

I built this platform around three main driving forces: Purpose, Passion, & Perseverance. I believe that these three are key to keep us motivated and focused. 

I want you guys to know that I myself am trying to make it in this world and achieve my life goals. But I want to do it WITH YOU. I want to build a community of people who want to achieve their goals as much as I want to achieve mine. I want us to support and inspire each other to see beyond our own limits.
