Spotlight: Meet Julia

Breathtaking waterfronts filled with magnificent harbors are only a small glimpse into the scenery of Edgartown, Massachusetts, a exquisite city located on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Known as one of the world’s greatest yachting centers, Edgartown is a preserved seaport village dating back to the 19th century. Julia, a recent graduate from Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, is a native to these surroundings and is extending her education this fall at Colgate University, a private college in Hamilton, New York. Similar to Edgartown’s beauty and pristine, Colgate’s campus is located in a rural village filled with nature perks. Colgate holds the rank of the “Most Beautiful Campus” chosen by The Princeton Review within their 2010 edition and was mentioned again in the company’s 2013 edition, “Guide to Green Colleges,” as one of the 322 most environmentally responsible colleges found throughout the US and Canada. Julia finds enjoyment within the campuses rich history, elegant settings, as well as the enthusiasm of the students and alumni.

Within her years of studying at Colgate University, Julia plans to major in Mathematics because it can be applied to everything in life. She believes that Mathematics can explain an abundance of things, while reaching into different study areas at similar times. For example, take a look through The Science Centre Singapore’s “Mathematics Everywhere & Everyday Exhibition” to explore how Mathematics can virtually be spotted everywhere within our daily rituals and indulgences. After graduation, Julia hopes to continue her studies in Graduate School, looking to become a Math Professor and moving to California or even Canada.

Using her phone constantly, Julia enjoys using Twitter for brilliantly pithy quips, Instagram to show off her delicious eats, and Facebook to urgently waste some time during her day. To make up this lost time, Julia uses StudyBlue when commuting to school, tennis matches, on the bus or more excitingly, on the boat. She credits the ability to share flashcards on StudyBlue as a means of improvement to her studying efficiency and effectiveness. During personal collaboration with classmates, Julia encourages everyone to never be afraid to ask for help. Her advice to students is to simply find your perfect study method and use it to fit your own needs. She urges others to take advantage of StudyBlue when preparing for exams and also reminds students that worrying does not adequately prepare anyone for anything. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!
