Pallavi joined the VACorps Program as part of her Gap Year and participated in a human rights internship.
“The last 2.5 months in Cape Town have been some of the best of my life! I’ve done lots of exploring— hanging out with endangered penguins, beautiful botanical gardens, amazing hiking, and plenty of beaches. Plus, I have made such special friends. The people I’ve met through VACorps are some that I know I will keep in touch with for the rest of my life, and Cape Town has been such an amazing place to explore. There’s nowhere like it. I really settled into a routine of working at my internship, followed by working out at the gym and then seeing more of Cape Town after, which made it easy to enjoy my internship while also being adventurous. I never want to leave Cape Town and am so sad that I only have 2 weeks left here, but I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience so far.
VACorps did a phenomenal job of organizing activities, always being helpful if any issue arose, and cultivating a true sense of community unique to any other programs I’ve ever heard of.”
