Fulbright Scholar Interview with Julia Murphy '18

What are you studying at Duke, and what other activities are you involved in at college?

I will be graduating from Duke with honors, majoring in Public Policy and minoring in Asian & Middle Eastern Studies and Environmental Science. I completed a thesis on the topic of carbon emissions trading in China, titled "Carbon Price Pass-Through in the Chinese Emissions Trading Scheme: Lessons from the Republic of Korea and the European Union."  On-campus, I am president of the Duke Sexual Assault Prevention Team, a teaching assistant for the Public Policy department, and a member of the Duke Wilderness Club.

Where are you going to do your Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Fellowship?

I was granted a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Award in Taiwan.  I will be teaching English at a primary school in Taiwan for the 2022-2023 school year.  I am very excited to improve my Mandarin proficiency, explore the natural beauty of Taiwan, and eat as many dumplings as possible! 

Is there anything else we should know about your Fulbright? 

I would like to say a sincere thank you to the Breck Chinese Department for making this dream possible!  I would not be moving to Taiwan next year if it were not for the amazing Chinese language program at Breck.  Thank you for fostering in me a love of the Chinese language, I am sincerely grateful.
