Julia Van Steenberghe is a 21-year-old woman, passionate, tenacious, a leader who is dynamic and organized, always insightful and compassionate as she interacts with others and inspires them to do their best. Julia spent the last 3.5 years as a full time student maintaining over a 3.97 GPA while working over 30 hours a week as a youth sports coach, fitness instructor and University Admissions ambassador.
Julia has always enjoyed volunteering in her local community, and was an active member of her sorority and various other academic and service honors societies such as Order of Omega and Kappa Delta Pi.
She is a former Division-1 athlete, cheering for the University of Maine for three seasons. At just 20 years old, Julia moved to Italy to work as an English language teacher. She is now working as a fifth grade teacher, which she loves, and as an advocate for those that are food insecure.
At 20 years old, I moved abroad for the summer to live and work in Italy, where I was an English language instructor teaching children ages 4-15.
The person I consider to be my best friend is 93 years old!
I completed a dual undergraduate degree in 3.5 years with a near perfect 3.97 GPA!
