Marisol has recently completed her master’s degree in counseling at ASPIC and joined the VACorps Program in July 2019 where she participated in a counseling internship at child and youth mental health community center.

” My experience as an intern in Cape Town will be unforgettable. I loved the fact that from the time I landed and was picked up from the airport I felt like I was welcomed and that I had people I could rely on at all times. 

During my time here I got to meet so many amazing people and my internship couldn’t have been any more rewarding.  My internship site was great. and I  got to work on incredibly interesting projects with great people.  I got the chance to do both group therapy and one on one therapy with kids (mainly young girls), which was my main goal when I applied to this internship. I will go back home having learned very much, not only at the workplace but from each and every person I met during this amazing journey in one of the most beautiful, lively and fun cities in the world.”
