Julia Haart

Julia Haart is hard to pin down — and that is by design. After decades of silently suffering under the constraints of a fundamentalist sect of Judaism, Haart found her voice, left her old life, and created a new one.

storymark host, Gil, learns about Julia’s small, sheltered upbringing, and gets a peek inside her new world which is…big. Haart is the star of the hit Netflix series, My Unorthodox Life, and author of the best-selling memoir, BRAZEN. But all of that came after she stepped out into the unknown, and made the bold choice to trust her instincts and blaze her own trail.
