Anya joined the VACorps Program in 2019 and participated in a Social Work and Human Rights Internship.
“I originally was not planning on coming to Cape Town but it was recommended to me during my interview and I decided to just take a chance and try it. When I was first paired with my internship I did not think that it was going to be a good fit. I was completely terrified to start work at my internship site, it was so far outside of anything that I was comfortable with and I definitely did not think that I would enjoy it. I ended up learning so much about myself and my field that I would’ve never expected. My time at my internship made me not only a better student but also a better person and it was completely unexpected. My internship transformed from something I was dreading to something it hurts to leave.”
