Abigail is a second-year B.A. Student Majoring in Business Marketing at the University of Georgia. She joined the VACorps Program in May 2019 and participated in a Marketing Internship at a local PR and Marketing Agency.

“Cape Town was definitely the coolest place I could have chosen to do an internship and I can’t imagine having gone anywhere else. My internship site was incredible and everyone there was so welcoming.  I got to see so many different aspects of PR since the company was so small which was amazing to see. I achieved my goal of learning as much as I possibly could about PR and I enjoyed working on all the many tasks I was given because I felt like I was doing something that was beneficial to my site. We crammed so many fun activities into these past 4 weeks and I am so sad to leave in two days!”
