After that, justice six, a tiktoker, cloned the video. The video became viral as soon as he shared it on Tiktok. Over a million people have already seen it and liked it more than 200,000 times. The experience highlights the differences between her worldview and those of her mother.
Julia, who was born on September 26, 2009, in Accra to a Ghanaian mother and a German father, relocated with her family to Heilbronn, a small city in Germany, when she was five years old. Heilbronn is located in the Baden-Wurttemberg wine-producing area. The distance to Stuttgart, the birthplace of Mercedes-Benz, is roughly 60 kilometers.
Animals had always been dear to Julia. She had dogs and birds as pets in Ghana, but she was never permitted to play beyond the gate of her home or tour the neighborhood because her parents constantly warned her that it was risky.
In this community, life was peaceful and secure. Her existence in Accra was so very different from this world because nobody here locked their doors. Vineyards and woodlands are abundant in the open space. Julia started to discover the beauty of her surroundings after she was liberated from the realm of wire mesh on the walls, heavy security doors, and burglar-proof windows.
She came upon an injured bird one day while she was playing in her backyard. She snuck the bird to her bedroom and kept her there in a box since she knew her mother was afraid of animals. Then, after robbing her mother’s kitchen of food, she nursed the bird back to health for nearly a week.
However, her mother discovered the bird and instructed her to release it. She sobbed and it crushed her heart, but she knew it was the proper thing to do. She did as such, but it did not stop her from leaving her heart open to all other species that she encountered in the expansive territory of Heilbronn’s vineyards. Since then, she has saved birds, hedgehogs, and squirrels.
