Hannah Whitmore
South Carolina, USA

Hannah participated in a marketing internship in Cape Town with VACorps in 2018. “I’ve been wanting to come to Cape Town for as long as I can remember, so when I heard about VACorps I was so excited for the chance to intern in this wonderful city. At my site I learned valuable skills that I know will help me in the future. My favorite part about Cape Town has been the abundance of things to do here. In one weekend on the Garden Route I went bungee jumping, walked with an elephant, kayaked in a beautiful river, and went on a big five safari. This country is so beautiful and has so much to explore. VACorps helped me feel welcome and comfortable with the transition of coming here and that is something I will be forever grateful for.”
