Girl Impact Livingstone

I love that we got to teach the children health, morals and general knowledge. Unfortunately 3 out of 4 weeks was a holiday for the kids so less of them showed up. Luckily many showed up for my last week so I could experience both situations.

A 3 months internship in St. Lucia

I really liked my time here in St. Lucia and I would love to come back one day. I did my internship here as a final assessment for my studies and I don't think there is a more interesting internship then going abroad.

Research in the Kruger Area

Spending 2 weeks with the researchers and other volunteers in the Kruger Area has been amazing. The work and effort that is put in is inspiring. Having close encounters with the animals gives you a new perspective on how important it is we work towards saving them. I would recommend this project to anyone who is willing to get their hands dirty and do the hard work necessary to have an impact.
