Fresh talent!

The W&H features team’s pleased to have a new writer on board. After a year of writing about property, Julia Mafcher’s thrilled to be working on a woman’s glossy. Originally from Cape Town, she’s been in Jo’burg for a year and still gets horribly lost. On Friday, she drove around Hillbrow for 2½ hours when she should have been on the other side of Jo’burg, and was so frazzled when she got back to the office, she gulped down a can of Coke to calm her frazzled nerves! “But I do know my way to Sandton City!” she assures us.
Here are a few things you should know about Julia:

Best characteristic:
I’m cheerful, bubbly and always up for a challenge.
Favourite pastimes
: Reading, dancing and going to braais.

Loves: Chocolate, Cape Town, writing and meeting new people.
: Bad drivers and rude people.

Inspired by:
Nature, people who’ve overcome hardship and my grandmother, who was feisty, independent and lived life to the full.

  1. Hi Julia - I feel privileged to be your first follower. Looking forward to hearing about your experiences and hope you find your way around soon. At least you know your way to THE mall. I live in Port Elizabeth and in 2 1/2 hours you can drive around it twice.
