Alex is studying Applied Movement Science at University of Texas at Austin. He joined the VACorps Program in May 2019 and participated in a Sports Physical Therapy Internship at a private practice. 

” I never imagined that I would have an internship here in South Africa and my experience completely exceeded anything I could’ve imagined. VACorps helped through every step of the process and made me feel like I had a family here. The people here along with the internship I was placed in helped give me the confidence in my studies as well as who I am in person. Being in Cape Town is definitely a special experience. To be honest part of me doesn’t want to leave. I just love it here too much. Cape Town is truly a special place.”
