A Hand Up: Julian’s Story

No child should have to go through the instability and violence that Julian and his brothers did. But fortunately, his mother made the courageous decision to leave. And then you had their backs. Listen to Julian tell his story as a former Coburn Place resident and what it means to all the children who have lived and will live here.

At Coburn Place Julian took his “first step toward a new normal”. And then he ran with it.

The importance of stability can’t be understated for Julian. It’s the central theme that runs through his story. He took advantage of his opportunity and created a most fulfilling life for himself.

Julian graduated from high school, DePauw University and then the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law with honors. He describes himself as a “Lawyer. Lyricist. Laureate.” By day he practices with a local law firm. By night he takes the stage as rapper, Bespoke.

Even as a teen, we knew Julian would succeed with his drive and intelligence. But most certainly, the hand up you gave him made a huge difference.
