Juliette Teutsch

Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School
Demorest, GA

Juliette Teutsch is passionate about women’s rights, prison reform, equitable educational access, and serving her community. She founded the Women’s Empowerment Club at her high school, which leads discussions on campus about gender inequality and holds item drives and fundraisers for local domestic abuse shelters. Juliette organized a book drive for a state prison and has contributed to her local community by volunteering at the local soup kitchen and with a local church to distribute food monthly to those in need. 
Juliette’s passion for foreign diplomacy and politics was sparked after participating in her school’s Nation Builders program, which allowed her to travel to Egypt, Belgium, and Washington, D.C., to speak to government and international organizations such as the United Nations, NATO, the U.S. Embassy in Egypt and Belgium, and the World Bank on the importance of the development of youth leadership programs. Beginning in Fall 2024, Juliette will major in Political Science at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and participate in the Women in Leadership Program. She plans to pursue a career in foreign diplomacy, international relations, or politics that allows her to live a life of servitude to the world.
