In 2018,ever passionate about charity and as a trustee of Street Child, Julia began organising and hosting the Streets Consulting Fun Tech Comedy Nights in aid of Street Child and in association with Barclays Rise, supporting comedy talent, by bringing the fintech community together.

“There are comedy classes you can take but they don’t work. You have to be born with it. There’s no doubt that Julia was. She doesn’t just say funny stuff, she is funny. And what’s annoying is that comedy isn’t even her day-job. She’s far too well-rounded, running her own business and being a trustee for a charity to be a full time comedy person…Ah well. At least there’s some work left for the rest of us.”
