Julia Miller, DVM, DACVD: I love people's reaction. I fully admit that I sing for people, right? So I love to see people really enjoy themselves. I like to see people have that moment where they're like, 'Oh, man, that note was so pretty,' or whatever it may be. So I really enjoy seeing people's reactions and getting the crowd interested. And I also really like singing opera because I think it's kind of misunderstood. There's so many beautiful operas out there, so I'd like to share it whenever I can.
