Yuntian Lu

Yuntian Lu holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Policy and French from the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy at the University of Virginia. She is originally from Shanghai, China and she is interested in helping students get access to more educational resources. After graduating from high school, she went to visit a primary school in a rural part of Shanghai and was surprised to find that there were students who had limited education resources even in one of the best-developed cities in China. Therefore, after she came to the United States for college, she joined volunteering programs that helped employees and international students on campus improve their English language skills. She also raised and donated money for students in provinces in China that were relatively poor and had fewer educational resources. She is dedicated to applying what she has learned from the Batten School and from her previous volunteering experience to help more students in developing countries.
