Knight to Know: Júlia Rocha Casemiro da Silva ’23

By Emily Horowitz | November 14, 2022

Majors: International Studies and Spanish

Hometown: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Why I came to Arcadia: Something that really caught my eye about Arcadia was that it’s all about global connections and being your “Gateway to the World.” Those words really stuck with me because it was something I was looking for as an international student.

Study Abroad: I spent the spring of 2022 in Granada, Spain. Even though I could have waived out of the International Studies study abroad requirement as an international student, I really wanted that experience.

Proudest Accomplishment: At Honors Convocation last semester, I received the Margaret F. LeClair Award for interdisciplinary writing. I applied kind of mindlessly, not expecting anything, and then I won!
