Oliver Hagan

Oliver is a proud graduate of the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication (’05). He fell in love with South Africa in 2003 while an exchange student at the University of Cape Town and later returned to the country in 2005 to work as a PADI SCUBA instructor after failing to find a job as a magazine editor in New York City. This early professional setback allowed him to return to South Africa and eventually discover his dream career within the field of international education. When not engaged in VACorps affairs, Oliver can be found hiking, mountain biking, trail running, training for triathlons or surfing one of Cape Town’s many amazing waves.
