“An internship with VACorps is one of those experiences that you have to live to fully understand its value. The written word doesn”t do justice to my experience as an intern in Cape Town. To move across the world, to work in an unfamiliar business environment, and to live with students from all around the globe forced me to erase any boundaries that I had limited myself to in the past. Before I came to Cape Town to work as an intern at Obzside, I pictured myself working as a business woman in the US. However, this internship has helped me see that there is an entire world out there and that the US is just a tiny part of it. This has been a liberating journey for me, and the amount of personal growth and knowledge I have acquired by living and working in a foreign environment is immeasurable.”
