Netherlands Netherlands 2015


Julia was born in Amsterdam and raised in Middelburg. After high school, she immediately left her small town in the Southwest of the Netherlands to return to Amsterdam to study philosophy. After three years, Julia decided to finish her bachelor’s degree in Berlin, a city she loves. During her master's in applied ethics at Utrecht University, her interest in politics increased. She had the chance to finish her studies with an internship at a lobbying office in The Hague, the political capital of the Netherlands. There she contributed to projects aiming to improve the protection of human rights in the Netherlands. One of them is the national campaign against racism called “Onderhuids.” In her spare time, Julia loves to travel, read philosophy and go out.
