Chae (pictured on the far right) is studying for her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Dance/Movement Therapy at Lesley University.  She joined the VACorps program in June 2022 and participated in a counseling and dance therapy internship at an NGO that supports at-risk adolescent girls.  

“My experience in Cape Town was unforgettable. The staff at VACorps was so supportive and responsive to anything I needed. What made it even more special was hearing stories of the staff members’ daily lives and their personal experiences. I felt that the cultural series and weekly excursions elevated my time here in Cape Town and made for a more authentic experience. Even on the days when I felt alone or homesick, I knew I was never alone because I had a community at VAC to support me. My internship helped me to grow as a future dance/movement therapist and enabled me to work with teenagers, which is a group I had not previously worked with. I will miss those beautiful young women dearly.”
