Ansley Gross
Georgia, USA

“I chose to intern in Cape Town because it was somewhere to go that was new and different for me. My entire experience completely exceeded my initial expectations. I really enjoyed getting to know other interns and taking part in random and spontaneous activities. Also, I loved working at a clinic in a township because it allowed me to further understand how privileged life can be in the US where I live. It also gave me a chance to get to know amazing people that I otherwise wouldn’t have had the chance to meet had I not come to Cape Town. Also, the VAC staff are all extremely helpful and care about our development as an intern while being here.”
