Pledge Class: Gamma Nu
Julia is a sophomore majoring in Management who was born and raised in Porto Alegre, Brazil and came to the Unites States looking for the great opportunities offered here. She decided to pursue her education abroad after her participation in a Math competition in Lucknow, India and realized she had to go to a place where she could experience other cultures in her daily life, what better place than San Diego State for her to do that? She pledged Delta Sigma Pi during Spring 2018 as part of Gamma Nu, during the pledging process she was able to meet great people and develop her professional skills as well as working with the Fundraising committee for the pledge class. Julia is also part of the International Peer Mentor program, mentoring first year international students that need help in adapting to their new lives in San Diego. The Brazilian Association of San Diego State is another part of her life on campus, seeking to make the Brazilian culture more known by other students and faculty. You can also find her working at SDSU’s International Admission Office, where she assists International Students with their applications to San Diego State! In her free time she likes to hang out with friends, watch movies/series or just looking for free events around campus. In the near future she wants to study abroad in Europe to be able to learn about other cultures. However, after graduation in 2021 she plans to work in the entertainment field, either with music or TV since it’s one of the areas that most interests her, being Universal Studios her dream place to work.
