Hi, I’m Julia. I’m a Capetonian but would love to have the opportunity to live many places in the world! Alongside my internship at Scalabrini, I’m currently completing my Honours in anthropology, with interests in reproductive health rights and medical anthropology. For my dissertation, I worked with an NGO that distributes washable sanitary pads to school girls, looking at notions of ‘dignity’ and gendered citizenship. I’m passionate about education and gender issues and strive to live in a more equal, empathetic and accepting world.
Currently I’m interning for 6 months with the Women’s Platform and also teach a class with Scalabrini’s English School. Working at Scalabrini has been challenging, humbling and amazing and I feel honoured to be working in a space with such passionate people.
