Sarah is studying Business Administration at the University of St Thomas. She joined the VACorps Program in June 2018 and participated in a business internship at a local NGO. 

“VAC made my internship and living abroad experience possible through the support I got throughout the entire process. They helped me assimilate to the diverse culture here in Cape Town not only in the workplace but the city as a whole. My time spent in Cape Town felt different because I was able to experience things I thought I would never do in my life, find new passions, and become more assertive in who I am as an individual. The internship placement process helped a lot to align what I wanted to do with the limited time I had here and even went above and beyond to provide new experience that I never dreamt of. Cape Town stole my heart and I will for sure be back again…”
