Samantha is studying for a BA in anthropology at Trinity University. She joined the VACorps program in June 2022, and participated in a public health internship at an NGO supporting women and children.
“The VACorps staff, Kholi, and Kuselwa are the most wonderful, kind, and supportive individuals. I am so grateful to them for facilitating this experience, and for all the support and love they gave while I was in Cape Town. I could write a whole book about Cape Town, and my experiences in the VACorps program, but I could write a whole series about the beautiful people I met while I was here. To all the kiddos and mothers at my internship site who I’ve loved and met, thank you. To Ms. Joslynn, my internship supervisor for being the definition of courageous, thank you. VACorps provides such a great opportunity to enjoy Cape Town and your internship, but the people that you meet give you a journey of love that if you indulge fully, you will never find anywhere else.”
