My two months in Cape Town were an incredibly formative experience. The VAC team welcomed us with open arms, helping us settle in with a week of orientation. This included typical orientation sessions and many activities to get to know Cape Town. After a week of adventures, we began our internships. I was placed in an incredible internship with a women’s soccer club, where I had the opportunity to meet some of the most inspirational and talented women. When I wasn’t at my internship, I was exploring the city around me. VAC organized optional weekly activities where they continued to take us to beautiful places; my personal favorites were Boulders Beach and Cape Point. Cape Town has a little of everything. There are beaches, mountains, and city streets. This program allowed the independence to explore the rich history of the city at my own pace. We even ventured outside the city to explore nearby wineries and botanical gardens. There was never a shortage of activities to do. I’m going to miss all the people and places I’ve met and visited during my time here. I couldn’t be more grateful for this opportunity.
