BYU Student gets booted :: essays research papers
B.Y.U. Student Gets Booted Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Could you imagine being twenty years old , trying to discover yourself, and then being punished for it? Weather you saw it happen on MTV or you heard about it in the news most of us have heard about ex-Real World cast member Julie Stoffer, and the controversy surrounding her appearance on the popular MTV reality show. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Julie Stoffer was born on July 11th 1979 in Provo, Utah. The daughter of devote members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Julie followed in her parents footsteps and decided to attend Brigham Young University. A business major and straight A student Julies responded to an advertisement to audition for MTVÃ¢â¬â¢s The Real World printed in the university newspaper during her junior year. Julie told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that she never really thought she would be picked for the show and the free trip to Los Angeles for the audition finals was what she was really after. Ã¢â¬Å" When I went to L.A. it was just life-changing. I got out there and I saw a whole new world IÃ¢â¬â¢ve never seen before. I met some really cool people, and I realized, if this experience could be this cool in a couple of days, imagine four months in a new place with new people. I just wanted to see new things, see what I wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t seeing in Provo. Julie also ad mitted that she hadnÃ¢â¬â¢t had that much exposure to MTV. Ã¢â¬Å" IÃ¢â¬â¢d seen a couple of episodes of Ã¢â¬Å"The Real WorldÃ¢â¬ at a friends house, but that was itÃ¢â¬ she told the Deseret News. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Upon entering Belfort Mansion, in New Orleans Julie was immediately faced with the change she had been looking for. Among her roommates Julie found two minorities, and an openly gay male. Most of whom had a set of moral values that were considerably different than hers. From the moment she stepped into the Real World house Julie began dispelling stereotypes associated with Mormonism. During the first hour she is asked if she is married and about weather or not she can drink caffeine. Although it seemed she was uncomfortable answering these questions she did anyway. Julie has said that Ã¢â¬Å" I went into this saying that I was not going to be a representative for MormonismÃ¢â¬ however she later recognizes that Ã¢â¬Å" ..in being my religion I am a representative of it.
