Introduce yourself! Tell us a little bit about your goals and interests:
Hi! I’m Julia. I grew up in Sussex, New Brunswick before moving to Ottawa for school. I am currently in my third year of the International Business program at Sprott with a concentration in Human Resources Management and International Strategy. My short-term goals include being trilingual (English, French, and Spanish), starting a career in human resources, and traveling as much as possible. I’m always looking for new opportunities and adventures! I love travelling, trying new foods, visiting new places, being outdoors, public speaking, and spending time with family and friends.
Why did you choose your language?
I chose Spanish because I wanted to learn a language where I will be fully fluent by the time I graduate. Since I already know French, I figured Spanish would be relatively easy to learn thanks to the similarities between the two languages.
Have you ever travelled overseas before? If so, where?
Nope…the furthest I have been is the United States (Puerto Rico, California, and Florida), and I have traveled extensively in Canada
What 3 things MUST you take with you while abroad?
Hmm…passport is super important, a journal to document my adventure, and my Carleton sweater
What are you most looking forward to?
I am excited to travel in South America, master Spanish, and try local foods.
