Robert is a pre-med student at the University of Georgia.  He joined the VACorps program in May 2021 and participated in a medical internship at a local Cape Town clinic. 

Cape Town has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Alongside all the activities to do here the VaCorps staff was awesome. They are inviting and supportive, but most importantly they make you feel like family. Because of this, the staff has made my time here something I hold especially close to my heart, and I honestly hope I will be able to come back to visit them. Working in Cape Town has also been extremely eye-opening for me. I have learned so much and even would go as far as to say the clinic where did my internship was the best experiential learning opportunity I have had.

P.S. I’M GOING TO MISS EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PLACE!
