Josie Wilson was born in a town of three hundred to muggle parents. She was an entirely mediocre child, one who had seemingly no special talents or abilities, who needed hours upon hours of extra tutoring from a young age, which ended up in her requiring need for homeschooling--which occurred not long after her powers began to manifest. It was better for the family as the town was prone to extreme levels of gossip, and this was a secret they wanted to keep hidden.
When she began attending Tallygarunga, it was under the guise of it being a boarding school for struggling students, and while she missed her dog, she found comfort in her new home, and in her house of Spencer. She wasn't fond of the half-lie, but at the same time she was excited to finally get out of Dookie and start somewhere new, and to learn about these strange abilities that she had.
For a time, she kept to herself, remaining largely invisible, occasionally sleeping in through part of her classes. It was easy to remain unnoticed when one always kept their head down. Then she met a girl in her third year who turned her world upside. She looked at her as how she wanted to be herself. She began to open up her shell and spend time among her peers, became part of a cult, and picked up learning the flute, which would later lead into her taking a musiciary class.
The longer she attended Tally, the more distant and strained her relationship with her parents became, and she often spent her holidays with her grandmother on the coast instead. Despite this, as she grew, she put more effort into becoming herself, and less someone else, trying her hand at quidditch and even the occasional expected prank. She developed rivals as easily as she began to develop true friendships, which made the loss of her first school friend moving away suddenly hurt less.
It took time, but she eventually figured out what it was she wanted to do with herself--she wanted to go into healing. By the time she was in her fifth year she had everything mapped out--although she'd already been taking some of the courses by that time already. After graduation she moved on to the Victoria Magical University, and began to move into her career. After graduating, she realized how much she missed Tally, and applied for a position to work as a nurse for the school.
