As a strategic optimist, I’m on a mission to strengthen gender equality, human rights, social justice and sustainability – by amplifying and supporting amazing changemakers worldwide.
My passion is to mobilize and support people around the world to create waves of positive change. I’m proud to have built Girls’ Globe – a global community of activists, advocates, experts and organizations working to make this world a better place. Our audience spans every country of the world and reaches tens of thousands every month.
As a seasoned communicator, I host courses and training to support changemakers and entrepreneurs to make a greater impact in a digital world.
I see it as my responsibility to make space for underrepresented voices globally, and to use my voice to advocate for equality and rights in a digital world, in my home country Sweden and beyond.
At the end of 2011 I started blogging about women’s and girls’ rights and health around the world – and started girlsglobe.org. Since then, Girls’ Globe has amplified the voices of hundreds of activists, advocates, experts and organizations on topics like sexual and reproductive health and rights, peace, sustainable development, mental health and feminism. We have members from more than 35 countries, across 5 continents and have brought young women activists and advocates to more than 14 global events in the past few years.
With over a decade of experience as a social entrepreneur and communicator, I’ve had the opportunity to lead communications campaigns and events for large and small organizations. Through Girls’ Globe, I support changemakers, impact-driven organizations and entrepreneurs to make a greater impact with their communications in a digital world.
I host trainings and courses on communications, storytelling and entrepreneurship.

From an early age, I’ve enjoyed public speaking and have had the opportunity to lead conversations and events in many different capacities. Through my work with Girls’ Globe, I’ve had the opportunity to speak at and moderate events on stages from New York to Rwanda. Whether it’s an event for high school students or global leaders, it’s my aim to bring a positive energy that inspires action through the voices and stories of changemakers.

Sweden changed in 2015, and so did the lives of many refugees, asylum seekers, Swedish citizens and politicians. Sweden became a country where the human right to asylum needs to be defended. This anthology collects several different texts and voices – politicians, activists, researchers, refugees, and people across the political spectrum.
Julia contributes with a chapter in this book about human equality and rights in a crisis of racism and polarisation in Europe and Sweden.
