While pursuing her bachelors degree at Ramapo College, Julie started working as a volunteer at Asia Watch in New York City assisting Burmese and Cambodian students who were petitioning for political asylum.
Julie continued pursuing her education by studying and enrolled at Rutgers University at Newark, where she obtained her Master of Arts degree in Public Administration. Julie graduated in May of 2012 and was inducted into Phi Alpha Kappa.
