Sara is in her second year of study towards her B.Sc in Occupational Therapy at University of Hochschule Fresenius in Germany. She joined the VACorps Program in February 2019 and participated in a clinical occupational therapy placement at a state hospital in Cape Town.
“I choose Cape Town, because I always wanted to come to South Africa.I knew, that Occupational therapy is quite developed in South Africa and my expectations became true. I learned a lot during my time in Cape town about my work and about myself. I really appreciated how VAC and my colleges at my internship site welcomed me. It was good to know, that VAC would always support me, when ever needed and I am very grateful for that. Cape Town is a wonderful city to explore and i definitely never felt bored. I enjoyed the weekly activities and tried to join every time. I stayed for 3 months which was a good amount of time for me. I will miss my flatmates at “‘3 Bishop”‘, because I became friends with all of them and we spent a lot of time together.“
