Eleni participated in a social work internship in Cape Town with VACorps in 2018. “I am considering going to Grad School for a Master’s in Social Work and wanted to get more experience in the field before committing. I found VACorps, a program which gave me the opportunity to intern in any field, tries to find your ideal placement and is in a beautiful city, so I immediately decided to apply. I am so grateful to have been placed at a site that fit me perfectly and only confirmed my passion for Social Work! Beyond my internship, I really enjoyed spending my free time going hiking. There are so many great hikes to choose from and I will certainly be back to complete the ones that I didn’t have time to while I was here. I am so grateful for all the wonderful people I was able to meet during my time here.”
