Hello, my name is Julie. I am currently a senior at Temple studying engineering. I decided to take a year off and during my year off I hope to fill the role of an after-school leader. Given my previous role as Undergraduate Assistance at Temple, I think I'd be a great fit. Thank you for your consideration.
