Faces of Boulder – Kay

April 15th, 2021

Kay is originally from Milan, Italy and moved to the Boulder in 2006. Before coming to Boulder, she lived in Pennsylvania, California, St. Louis and many other places. She was adopted, which was what prompted her move to the U.S., but, “if I wasn’t adopted I would want to come to America to experience the different cultures and people. It’s a place people come to thrive and succeed and that would be why I would want to come here.” She occasionally goes back to Italy because a lot of her family still resides there.

Faces of Boulder – Joshua

April 13th, 2021

Joshua moved back to Boulder a year and a half ago after living in Ohio, California and South Carolina. He moved back because “this is the only place I’ve ever felt like I haven’t had to leave. I’ve been somewhere else and I feel like I am still waiting to come back to here.” Although Boulder calls Joshua back every time, his favorite place to live was Ohio because there were multiple seasons and “there was no grey line between rich or poor- you were either working class or rich.” Joshua says his favorite thing to do is people watch around Boulder, especially... Read More

She has built herself a quality reel since she came to the states, and her work ethic will only take her further. Be on the look out for her in a theater near you!  Read More

  Success by design. That is how you could describe Juliana’s journey from Washington state to Boulder. Juliana is in the ENVD program and you can tell with just one look in her apartment. She works at a desk that she designed and built, her bed sits on the floor because she has not built the frame just yet, and a lamp she designed lights her friend’s apartment across the street. Returning from a semester in Denmark and a summer internship in New York, she will finish her college career when she graduates this spring! Good luck Juliana!  Read More

Meet Elizabeth! She was volunteering at the Boulder Creek Fest encouraging kids to sign up for reading camps this summer. “Reading is important to me because it opens a world that you can’t explore anywhere else.

Guess who I found exploring Chautauqua Park? This lovely lady, Julia Fallman.

Julia describes Boulder as, “a sunny place where entrepreneurship meets the outdoors. In one day I could go for a trail run, go to work, climb the Flatirons, and grab dinner at the farmers market.” Cheers to that Julia!  Read More

Originally from Colorado, Derek spends a lot of his precious time as a painter! His passion comes from many places, one is compassion, because he feels the need to respond to a lot of the people that he’s associated with at work because they need him in a lot of ways. Another is his love for arts and creative expression. It’s very motivating to explore consciousness in London. When he projects himself in the future, he would like to be a professional artist, and exclusively own an art community house, where everybody chips in. Enough individuals that rent is cheap and it makes it... Read More
