Juli Myers is a writer, activist, and political fixture based in Phoenix, Arizona. Having transitioned in 2011, she speaks extensively about the transgender experience as she understands and has experienced it.
*** Praise for "On Becoming a Woman" ***
"Juli Myers offers an educational and informative presentation on the perspective of a transgender person. Her sense of humor creates a comfortable and relaxing environment for the participants. She starts off by reading an inspirational piece of her writing and then she opens it up for questions. The audience always has many questions to ask which allows for an engaging conversation between her and the students. In addition to sharing about her own experience, Juli is quite knowledgeable about current politics and AZ law. This adds to the conversation on social change. My students' feedback on Juli's presentation is always positive. It is one of the classes that they also remember and refer back to even at the end of the semester and when they leave the classroom." -- Professor Olga Tsoudis, Estrella Mountain Community College, Avondale, Arizona
"By sharing your story, Juli, my students have gained a great awareness of the transgender culture. You put a face to the importance of human kindness. You addressed any misconceptions or questions that they may have had beforehand. I have heard nothing but positive feedback. It is such a joy to not only believe that we can change the attitudes & beliefs of young minds but to actually see it - is an amazing thing for sure! Keep doing what you're doing, Juli." -- Professor Terri Saunders, Phoenix College, Phoenix, Arizona
