Florie Pingoud
Florie Pingoud
EC Cape Town
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. I believe South Africa still has a long way to go to become a totally safe country and a mixed-race nation, but I enjoyed learning more about that. My aim is to finally find a job in an NGO as an anthropologist.
