Duration: 16 weeks

My name is Florie Pingoud. I combined a course with an internship in South Africa, more specifically in Cape Town. My role during the internship was to take part in a project to help refugees and migrants defend their rights in the country. This included dealing with interesting issues such as Gay and lesbian rights, HIV, violence against women and refugee rights. Working and studying English in this context helped me learn much more about South Africa. I had lots of fun there and the place is beautiful.

My aim is to finally find a job in an NGO as an anthropologist.
