Julia earned Master’s Degree in International Relations from South Ural State University (National Research University) in Russia. She has more than 4 years experience in communications and PR, both in private and non-profit sector. Before entering Atlas Corps Fellowership Program, she managed PR department in the private sectors’ company operating internationally. She was responsible for planning and implementing PR strategy for six international projects at the same time. In addition, she was a supervisor for interns and worked with journalists. Her strongest skills are partnership building (with media and non-profit organizations), delivering messages through texts (blog posts, newsletters, social media, pres-releases, etc.) and PR-planning. She is a team player and believes that best results are achieved by a team rather than an individual. Her core values are honesty and integrity. She is particularly interested in using her experience in communications to help deliver messages and build meaningful partnerships in the fields of migration issues, women empowerment and education. She believes that her previous experience with UNESCO Russia, UN online Volunteers and UN Association of Russia will help her in that.
