My name is Julia McGrath and I come from a small rural town on east coast of South Africa called Mtubatuba. I am in Grade 11 at a private school called Grantleigh and I come from a family of four – my father is an accountant and General Manager of a sugar cane company; my mother is a high school Biology teacher and I have a sister, Chrissie who is studying medicine at university.

Hey, so maybe you've seen me around or talked to me a bit. I would like to tell you more about me and where I come from.
I live on a farm in the northern-cape province of South-Africa. I go to school in Kuruman, a nearby town. During the week I stay in my school hostel and on weekends I go home. My family consists of 6 members, my mom and dad, my three older brothers and myself. My brothers don't live with us anymore but we visit each other often.
