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.
We are excited to share that Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass, will visit campus next week.
We are proud to announce that Breck alumnae Julia Murphy '18 and Kelly Reiling '18 have been named Fulbright Scholars for 2022.
