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!
