As my mentors you guys have gone above and beyond time and time again! You have been so helpful throughout my time in Cape Town. When I go back to the UK if anyone is thinking of doing an internship abroad I will certainly say go with Bridging Gaps!
I’d tell them that you will have a great time. You can have a great time in Cape Town on your own, but through Bridging Gaps, you’re going to meet so many more people, you’re going to have people a phone call away if you need help, you’ll also have people who have a knowledge of what its like to live in Cape Town, and what its like to intern here. So, if this is what you need to do for your career I’d recommend it!
You guys were awesome! First of all you helped organise so many events, like paragliding, skydiving and an amazing safari. You also were so helpful recommending places to go and getting us discounts! You’ve also been helpful with your constant check ins with us, and it was great to see if an intern was having a tough time, you stepped in and helped arrange a whole new internship for them within a matter of days. The social activities are also great!
I hope to gain work experience and get to know a relevant field of work
I've recently finished my undergraduate degree in History at the University of Edinburgh. During my degree I became interested in studying international development and social history. I'm very passionate about a career in this sort of area that allows me to work within communities. Gaining experience abroad would be incredibly insightful and interesting as I am keen to develop my skills in writing, communication, team-building as well as gaining exposure to a different environment and cultures.
I hope to further develop my news gathering, reporting and story telling abilities as a journalist as well as work to support the area I work with the most accurate, up-to-date news.
I hope to work with wildlife park conservation teams., video my experiences and write my experiences in the form of a Wildlife documentary, meet some amazing people along the journey and stay in contact with them.
