Dylan, pictured on the left,  joined to VACorps program in March 2021 and participated in a marketing internship as part of her GAP year.  She will begin her studies at Stanford in the fall of 2021. 

“I am so incredibly thankful that I chose Cape Town and VACorps as a place to intern abroad during my gap year. I was able to meet some of the most amazing people I have ever met and experience places and activities that I never thought I would get to experience. I have learned so much about not only living on my own in a completely different country but also a lot about myself as well. I feel like I became a lot more independent and learned how to work with people who are very different from me. I know this program has definitely prepared me for the future and I will miss everything about it!!”
