What did you enjoy most?
My best experience was the internship with the Sakhisizwe Youth Development Programme, a South African after-school programme that offers mentorship, academic support, and healthy living, through sports, life skill workshops amongst others with emphasis on spirituality and creativity.
I also enjoyed the Amazing Race Challenge which allowed my team and I to tour the amazing City of Cape Town and its environs. I got to eat Ox lung for the very first time, played a game of cricket and held a snake in my hands – stuff I would originally not dream of ever doing! We placed second in the Amazing Race Challenge by a very close margin.
It was also really nice to meet people from different tribes, religions, traditions, countries and continents and I got to learn a thing or two from each and every one.
