Julia W.

Mexico

Summary

I am a Fulbright García-Robles, Binational Business Grantee currently based in Mexico City. As a part of the program, I take courses at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México and work full-time at New Ventures México. I am using this opportunity to reach full fluency in Spanish and to become well-versed in impact investing, especially through New Venture's Exponential Accelerator program which works to grow six of the best renewable energy startups in Mexico. I am a recent graduate from the University of South Carolina, Marketing and International Business major, History and Spanish minor who has been blessed with the opportunity of continued study at Oxford University in England, at Lady Margaret Hall College. With that fifth year, I expanded my knowledge of Entrepreneurial Finance and Operations, as well as delved into the Economic History of vice. This opportunity came after a fruitful year studying in Santiago, Chile with the International Business of the Americas Cohort at the Universidad de Chile: Facultad de Economía y Negocios. The exchange in Chile led me to near fluency in Spanish, as well as opportunities to excel through internships at both the U.S. Embassy in the Foreign Commercial Service and at the internationally renowned company First Solar Inc., studying government policy and renewable energy development. I have continually become involved in each of my university experiences, serving as President of International Students, Teaching Assistant, and participating in academic groups such as Marketing Scholars, a top tier level of the Marketing program that worked on a project for Lionsgate Entertainment. I hope to bring that same passion to each and every new opportunity, whether through a future full-time position or a new experience abroad at a highly competitive university.
