The social media maven is yet to let the media or even her fans into her early life or her family information.

Her activities and fame on the social media platform soon attracted media powerhouses like The Huffington Post who dubbed her “the Queen of Snapchat”. She was also nominated for the 2016 Shorty Award for Snapchatter of the Year. Besides partying and selfies of her bodacious figure, Goddard has tapped into her entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen to build her brand.
The social media influencer has partnered with such brands as Beats by Dre, Revolt TV, and Red Bull which she promotes through Snapchat. In 2014, she started the YesJulz Agency, an all-female creative agency which capitalizes on the nebulous intersection of nightlife, social media, and marketing.

In 2016, she was associated with LA director/photographer Rambo Diego Ramos who she shot a sex tape with. In the same year, she sparked dating speculation when she was seen on a beach, wearing a thong bikini with a handsome man identified as Maxwell Osborne.
