Hannah is studying for a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Texas A&M University. She joined the VACorps program in May 2022 and participated in a medical internship at a public clinic.  

“VACorps has given me the opportunity to find and build relationships with fellow interns and locals that I will keep with me forever. Coming to South Africa, I did not know what to expect, but every single expectation was exceeded thanks to the support of my new community here in Cape Town. This program has allowed me to step outside my comfort zone in every aspect. Learning and being a part of a new culture is something that is absolutely irreplaceable. I will forever be grateful for my time in South Africa and all of the lifelong friends I made along the way.”
