Her autobiography In my chair or yours? was published in 2010 and sold more than 30,000 copies.
With her inspiring story, Juliana made headlines across her native Brazil. Garnering a strong public response, her book was distributed to public schools throughout the country by the Ministry of Education. Major television networks have interviewed Juliana, and before long she had become a spokeswoman for the inclusion movement.
Since 2012, Juliana lives in New Zealand with her mother, brother and 2 sisters. But life is unpredictable and she faces right now a huge challenge: to stay permanently in New Zealand with her family. After having the application for residency declined twice solely because of her condition, Juliana once again is transforming crisis into opportunity. She made her battle to stay in New Zealand an opportunity to call attention for a change.
