Natively from New Jersey, Yulia is a junior at Emory University pursuing a double major in Environmental Science and Anthropology.

Her passions lie in climate justice and social impact and using community-centered principles to guide her theory of change. Her ultimate goal is to leverage the power of capital and the private sector to drive sustainable development and climate resilience solutions to build an equitable, just, and livable future for herself and for generations to come. Outside of class, she loves singing, working out, and spending too much time on Tiktok.
