Jahdziah St. Julien is a program assistant with the Better Life Lab (BLL) at New America. She oversees BLL’s digital presence, disseminating the program’s latest research and reports on gender equity, paid family leave, work-life balance, and social policy. St. Julien curates website and social media content, maintains the program’s website, including Mission: Visible, and tracks their impact and audience engagement. She is also the author of the program’s weekly newsletter rundown which covers the latest on work, gender, and social policy, Your Life, Better. St. Julien also supports BLL projects and events, and provides ongoing research assistance for the BLL team.
St. Julien holds a B.A. in history from Princeton University, where she focused her independent research and thesis on amplifying voices that went unheard. Exploring the real-life impact of political moments and social movements on historically marginalized communities, her research emphasized the importance of representation within historical narratives. She brings this perspective to the Better Life Lab, promoting equity, justice, and wellbeing through storytelling, research, and reporting.
St. Julien hails from the Sunshine State and is proud to call South Florida home. Now that she is in DC, she hopes to explore as many coffee shops, used bookstores, and historical landmarks as possible.
