He graduated in 2021 with a concentration in Theater. Julius is a nineteen-year-old sophomore Acting major at Howard University.

He is a part of several extracurricular activities on Howard’s campus as an advent student leader. This year alone, Julius has been part of several short films and performances. Most recently, he closed The Revolution Will be Improvised with the Second City Theatre (based out of Chicago and performed here at the Kennedy Center). He was also in Seven Guitars by August Wilson, a production by the Chadwick A Boseman College of Fine Arts. At the age of fifteen, Julius became ordained as a minister through his church New Rising Star, affectionately known as “The STAR'' where Dr. Thomas Beavers is his Pastor. Now every week he splits his time between teaching and concentrating on Theater. His dream is to not only act but write, direct, and produce films that will give encouragement and inspire youth in a positive light.
