Julia is a sophomore from Phoenix, AZ double majoring in Political Science and Middle Eastern and North African Studies. Two of her most valuable experiences beyond the classroom include participating in UA Mock Trial and interning for U.S. Senator John McCain. Mock Trial has been such a valuable experience because outside of learning how to publically speak and courtroom etiquette; she has created a close bond with many of her teammates. Her political internship helped her learn how to adapt and work professionally with people who are not like-minded. In her spare time, Julia loves to travel.
