Julia Kurnicki

Little Flower Academy

Julia is honored to receive the #11 Forever Award. She is humbled and grateful for the honor of this recognition and will strive to  live up to the Foundation’s legacy in her daily life.

Julia has spent the majority of her summers at Pioneer Pacific Camp, a Christian Camp located on Thetis Island. She has served the community diligently and participated in the Leaders in Training Program this past summer. Along with the 5 weeks spent at camp, she traveled as a Pilgrim for 2 weeks in Portugal, alongside 25 other youth, to participate in World Youth Day 2023. Both experiences were challenging but have greatly influenced her commitment to her school, faith and clubs. Maintaining her participation in Senior Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Music Ministry, private voice training and the theatre productions she has participated in over the years has not been easy, but she is dedicated nonetheless. Julia believes her contribution to the LFA community lies in taking on a “servant leadership" approach in her daily routines. She believes she has been able to live up to this standard during her Senior Year as an Executive Ambassador Leader for the Mental Health and Wellness Committee, where she is trained in Mental Health First Aid and Crisis Management. As an Ambassador Leader, she is able to share her passion for mental health awareness with the student body. She is also honored to have been selected as a Prefect and actively demonstrates what it means to be a exemplary student at Little Flower Academy.

Julia is inspired by the #11 Forever Award and Kristian’s story, especially in how he refused to give up hope, despite the many challenges and setbacks he faced. Leaning on his family, Kristian showed incredible courage. Inspired by his example of hope and courage, it is Julia’s intention to pursue nursing through which she would like to bring hope and healing to others who are struggling.
