Julia Lammers is a freshman at the University of Pennsylvania studying International Relations with minors in Consumer Psychology and Anthropology. Her background as a dual-citizen of Japan and the United States has driven her interests in diplomacy in the East Asian region as well as global governance. She is a passionate learner of foreign languages: she has studied French for 5 years, participating in exchange programs to Versailles in 2016 and 2017, and has used her existing fluency in Japanese to self-study Korean for 8 years. During her summers spent in Japan, she has volunteered for the Let's Talk Foundation to teach English classes to victims of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Currently, Julia works as an intern for Dr. James McGann’s Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program, focusing on think tanks in the Asia Pacific region and English-Japanese translations.
