Julia is currently pursuing a bachelor degree in Political Science at Leiden University. Next to this, she is involved in the honours programme at Leiden University. Julia was born in France and has lived there until the age of 9. That is why she never identified as Dutch or French, but as a European citizen.
Next to her study, she enjoys being active in different youth organizations that specialize in education, the European Union and security issues.
As an EST ambassador, Julia wants to encourage students to learn and gain more knowledge about the European Union. Especially in the current enhanced polarized political climate, she believes that informing our generation about the European Union is an important part of forming your own opinion about it and becoming aware of it’s value.
