With self-harm and suicide ideation reaching epidemic highs, there has never been a more critical time to connect in a real way and for students to know they aren’t alone. GARCIA’s raw and revealing approach is leading students to rewrite the stigma of mental health, making her one of the most game changing voices of our generation. This is not your traditional lecture. It’s an experience to help students SILENCE ANY STORY THAT TELLS THEM THIS IS THE END… Because you never know how sharing your story, can help someone else through theirs.

Recognized as a peer with a not so pretty past herself, Julia is able to uniquely engage both young men and women on the most uncomfortable, but critical, conversations about what really goes on in-between and beyond the sheets. This riveting narrative, alongside students, explores the truth behind today’s sex culture and how we can, TOGETHER, rewrite it.

why is it so hard to feel loved or feel worthy?
why couldn’t she escape this constant feeling of being undeserving and dirty?

At 24 years old, Julia Garcia published her first book, Somewhere In Between. Julia has been on the lecture circuit since 2009, when she became the creator and founder of; a TRU Movement that combines motivational speaking with the creative arts, such as theatre and spoken word poetry. Through Truality, Julia has inspired thousands of students across the country to be TRU…The Real U.

It went so well! Julia is amazing and everyone loved her talk. It was so cool being able to see her again with new material. It is truly inspiring the way she is able to connect with an audience. We sold a bunch of books and she stayed and talked to students, the night was just perfect! We had about 150 female athletes in attendance, they all had nothing but good things to say after. She is so great to work with, as is everyone with CIA.
Thank you so much for helping us bring amazing lectures to campus!!
