Lewis Hine Documentary Fellow 2002-2003
Julie Norman graduated from Duke in 2002 with a self-designed major on media in education and social activism. Julie is a photographer and videographer with a background in media studies. Julie has coordinated and produced two collaborative documentary video projects with adolescents. As an intern with the Global Action Project, she worked with at-risk youth to produce a video about their daily lives. As a volunteer for the World Club and Lutheran Family Services of Raleigh, North Carolina, she worked with immigrant and refugee teenagers on a video that explored their experiences of resettlement in North Carolina.
During her time at Duke, Julie coordinated Duke's service learning program, counseled fellow students as a resident advisor, and was a photography teacher and tutor in Durham public schools. She also worked as a project assistant for the National School Boards Association's Education Technology Program.
Julie was a Jessica Jennifer Cohen Foundation/Lewis Hine Fellow at the Children of the Nile project in Cairo, Egypt. The Jessica Jennifer Foundation provides financial assistance to young adults to enable them to perform community service that otherwise would be financially difficult or impracticable for them to do. Julie's Fellowship began in October 2002, after two months of intensive Arabic study in Cairo.
