Julie Han, Simon Fraser University, winner of the BC Study Abroad: Stories from Abroad Scholarship
Born and raised in Vancouver, Julie began her journey at Simon Fraser University as a recipient of the Gordon M. Shrum Shad Valley Scholarship. Unsure of her path, Julie found inspiration in her surroundings – Vancouver, a truly international city. Majoring in international studies and minoring in history, she continues to cultivate her passions for Vancouver and its beautiful and complex cultural mosaic, hoping to pursue graduate studies on immigration, community development, and nationalism. Her fascination with Vancouver extends to her hobbies, which include fencing, running, hiking, canoeing, and café hopping around Vancouver. This spring and summer, Julie will be studying anthropology, cinema, and politics at the University of Amsterdam. She will also be travelling to Berlin, Barcelona, Prague, Paris, London, and Milan. Julie is immensely excited to finally take her passions for the world abroad.
