Juliana Borges

I have been fortunate to work with Juliana for the past two years, and I can say without hesitation that she embodies grace, humility, and compassion for others that is unparalleled in most UW students. Throughout her time at UW she has consistently given her time and energy to helping others through work with the Carlson Center and community organizations. Juliana serves as an inspiration to many through her work with Forefront. After losing a friend to suicide, she has turned that tragedy into a drive to help others, encouraging conversations around suicide, helping campus to develop better strategies for supporting students with mental health issues, and being a key organizer for the Husky Help and Hope 5K. I have the pleasure of working many outstanding students, and I can say without reservation that Juliana is one of the most caring, thoughtful, and dynamic students I have encountered. Her legacy will live on well beyond her time at the University of Washington.
