  • “One of the greatest things I came away from this internship with is the inspiration and skills to start my own business, something I have always been interested in. I realized that I am capable of it, especially with the tools and connections I have made.  I loved the cultural things I was able to learn and the people I met. I now feel I have a home in South Africa.”

My experience has allowed me to adjust to full-time work experience and work on professional habits such as communication with superiors and building relationships within the workplace.
