My name is Julianne Lake. I’m 22 years old and I just graduated college with a degree in Chinese, and specializations in Global Studies and Linguistics. I am deeply interested in international cultures, and hope to work in the international cooperation field. I’m a huge foodie, I love all kinds of food from all different countries and I’m not afraid to try new things. I can’t wait to meet all of you and learn even more about your home countries, and maybe you can teach me a recipe or two. I hope you’ll see the beauty of Michigan and love the Michigan summers just as I do, which are beautiful, sunny, and a little rowdy. Just like you, I’ll be studying quite a bit this summer for the GRE, the FSE (Foreign Service Exam) as well as brushing up on my Mandarin and starting French and Spanish. I’m ready to fill all of time with memories and making progress towards my language goals! I hope everyone else is ready to work hard and play hard!
