Ashley participated in a human rights law internship with VACorps in 2016.

“South Africa has been an amazing adventure. From paragliding over Cape Town to wine tasting in Stellenbosch to camping and cliff diving in the Cederburgs, every second of my time spent here has been worth it. During my internship, I was lucky enough to attend Parliamentary meetings, observe an ongoing trial in high court, help redesign a human rights violations database, and attend different protests around Cape Town! The experience and the friendships I have gained from this experience are unforgettable and while I’m sad that it’s over, I’m excited for the next adventure ahead!

“Ask for things to do and don’t be afraid to come out of your shell. They’re all crazy people, but they’re amazing people who will welcome you with open arms.”
