My name is Júlia and I was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. In 2016, I moved to Germany, to the charming Bavarian town Passau, where I have been studying Law, specializing in public international law and international economic law.
I have been brought up in the Lutheran faith, actively participating in the congregation alongside my parents, but it was not until I started university that I found and embraced my own faith, which over time became especially important to me. I joined a local Student Christian Movement (SCM), that I have grown to regard as my second family, and where I have been enthusiastically attending and organizing events for the past years.
I came into contact with WSCF-Europe by chance and was immediately drawn to the unique, supportive environment and the one-of-a-kind, open atmosphere that accompanies each event. I knew then that this organisation is something I want to be a part of.
My SCM and other international projects provided me with invaluable experiences that ultimately motivated me to apply to become a Programme Coordinator for WSCF-Europe. As part of the European Regional Committee, I hope to achieve two things: create opportunities for other young people, similar to those that shaped me as a person, so that they can broaden their horizons and meet new people and cultures while doing so. Secondly, I hope to bring faith closer to my generation and enable a progressive, constructive interfaith dialogue.
My work in the ERC encompasses organizing all of our current and future events. That means having lots of brainstorming sessions with the working groups, long Zoom calls and inspired conversations with my fellow ERC members. But what I enjoy most about it is seeing an event we have been working on for months become reality and then getting to know people from all over Europe, who each bring their unique vision, creativity, dedication and passion to the table. That diversity is perhaps my favourite thing about the Federation.
