Julia Haart is the CEO, co-owner, and chief creative officer of the talent media agency Elite World Group. She was the creative director for La Perla and started her own shoe brand a week after escaping from her ultra-Orthodox sect of Judaism, known as “Yeshivishe” or Black Hatters, in Monsey, New York.

Haart is the star of the Netflix docuseries My Unorthodox Life. Most importantly, she is a women’s activist. “When I was in high school,” she says, “I realized I could jump.
