"It immersed me in a culture so different from mine, and opened my eyes to the ample opportunities I have to make a difference. My time here in South Africa has been an amazing journey – one that ill be telling to my children and their children. VA32 welcomed me as their own and ignited my passion for travelling and service to a world that has given me so much."
