Sydney, a student at Oregon State University,  participated in a Public Health and Education Internship in January 2019.

”  Cape Town stood out to me when I read up on the public health internship opportunities available. After researching the history of South Africa and the beauty within the country, I couldn’t help but put cape town down as my top pick in interning abroad. Living in Cape Town for three months has provided with me with life long friends, cultural knowledge, adventure, an impactful internship, and a desire to come back. My internship at Ottery Youth Care Centre has changed my perspective of life and will forever have a place in my heart. I want to thank VACorps for providing this internship and helping along the way!”
