” I chose Cape Town for the culture difference and new experiences! I came here alone and I am so glad because it really made me step out of my comfort zone and meet the best people from all around the world. My internship was a medical internship and I gained so much knowledge here about the medical field and Cape Town. I have gained experience and interacted with patients more than I ever have in America. It was cool to meet and listen to the SA language as well.The hiking and beaches here are unbelievably breathtaking! I will miss the views and the people! Everyone should travel as much as they can if they have a chance! “
