Mya is studying towards a bachelor’s degree in Government and International Relations and a Bachelor’s in Criminology and Criminal Justice from Griffith University. She joined the VACorps program in October 2022 and participated in a human rights internship.
“I chose to come to Cape Town on a whim, which turned out to be one of the best whims I’ve ever had. I had the most amazing experience during my time in Cape Town. VACorps organized for me to intern with the incredible Justice Desk, which was an opportunity I simply wouldn’t have been able to do without the support and organization of the VAC team. VACorps works hard to ensure that every week you have to opportunity to explore and engage with Cape Town’s culture and experiences. One of the best parts about my choice to intern through the VACorp was meeting and getting to know the other interns, like-minded individuals from across the world who I connected with in Cape Town and who have become lifelong friends. I highly recommend this internship program for an ideal mix of work and play, individual exploration, and support growth.”
