About Jewelia
Joined August 2017
Hello, my name is Julia (Julie is a nice name, but it's not mine).
Originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, I've immigrated to the United States 25 years ago. I've started my working career back in Russia as a school teacher. My first job in the US was as a photographer (that was in the predigital era), and for the past 20 years, I've been working in IT. My last position was terminated 2 years ago, and now I am exploring several new career paths trying to decide which works for me the best.

Unfortunately (or fortunately! :) ) I can't go back to working full time in an office as I am a caregiver to my adult son with disabilities. The technical side of an Internet business is not much of a concern for me, but the ability to react (especially quickly if needed) by writing a blog or an article is a bit of an issue for me. My English became pretty good over the years I've been living in the USA, but writing takes lots of my time. I've never been my own boss or an entrepreneur. Let's see how far I can go with my own business in digital marketing :)

Nowadays, digital photography is my serious hobby. I also love reading and learning new things. My son is a happy and adventurous young man. He became a musician (blind, autistic musical savant). My husband also works in IT, and he cooks delicious meals for us. Our family likes to travel the world, and we all dance Argentine tango.

I look forward to learning a new way of earning money for our expensive hobbies! :) Thanks in advance for the support of WA community!

Wonderful life story Julia! I am quite sure you will adapt to this online stuff pretty easily and excel. You have a ready-made niche it seems, photography has been a central theme for many years and you likely are VERY good at it! Best of luck, and ask questions if you have them, plenty of people to help you out! Cheers! Dave : )

Hi Jewelia,
Great to have you onboard. I have trouble also with acronyms that many use when explaining answers to my questions. I have never used Facebook or any of the social media outlets. So my english gets stretched. The main thing that will help you is KEEP ASKING.
Don't let their answers be too short. Ask again.
I followed you
Best to you
Dan

Good evening Julia,

Well, here I am. Today I am typing my fingers blue as I have to answer so many comments, likes etc. Just as well I only write 1 post a month. Your family seems to be really nice even if you have these challenges. I mean to all dance together, what better can there be? I always say this to the new people I meet here. In case you need a good source for writing do check my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, some amazing documents can be found there.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

Regards, Taetske

Hi Julia:

Many thanks for the follow. We have much in common. I too am a full time caregiver. I care for my mother who is widow. We lost my father two years ago. My parents were married 46 years ago.

Also, like you. I have an adult son who is autistic. He is high functioning and also loves music. I too care for him as well, but he goes to school during the day. He attends college during the day. He does get bullied on campus and so I do need to intervene now and then for that purpose.

I hope all is going well so far. Keep in touch!

Steph
