Shelby joined the VACorps program in May 2018 and participated in a Physical Therapy Placement.

“I chose Cape Town as a place to study abroad because it was somewhere that I had always wanted to go and seemed to have the highest guarantee of an experience greatly different than anything I could experience back home in the United States. Living in CT has been absolutely amazing, from the wonderful people with colourful personalities to the breath-taking views. I learned how to become independent and become a member of the Cape Tonian society. For me, nature was the best experience, both climbing mountains and surfing the waves. My internship supervisors were so kind, giving me independence to try things on my own and grow in my profession. I will also take away all the friendships I made through VACorps and rent-a-room and the experiences we had on the weekly activities.”
