“There are some things you do in life that define you. They change the way you think, the way you feel, and the way you see the world around you. That is how I would describe my experience in South Africa. I will be returning to the U.S with an empty bank account but richer in life and experiences than I ever thought possible. I can honestly say I have had the best 3 months of my life. I worked for an amazing company developing the next amazing beverage to hit the market, traveled the country coast to coast, and met the most amazing people from around the world. When I look back at it, I can’t even remember the series of events that got me to where I am today. I don’t know when or how but Cape Town changed me. Take the road less traveled by. Take a chance and you will never have to spend your life wondering. I promise you, you won?t be disappointed with what you find.

“Thank you to VAC, the Stream Team, and everyone who made this experience possible for me. I read somewhere that “travelling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” and it’s true.  This will not be my last adventure. Keep it classy Cape Town.”
