Savannah participated in a medical internship in Cape Town with VACorps in 2018. “I had a couple of friends back home who had previously participated in the VACorps program and had recommended it to me as a really great program for Pre-Health intent. What I didn’t realize is how much Cape Town, the people, the culture, and the VACorps staff would help change my life. I feel like this experience was not only a beneficial, but necessary component in my personal journey to professional, social, cultural, and personal maturity. Learning how to live in a country/city other than your home creates a sense of global awareness, and recognition of personal privileges that I feel every human needs to develop at some point. I completed a medical internship and felt that this professional experience allowed me to learn so much more than I ever could have imagined I would.”
