A month in Cape Town

As a medical student, I was looking for an experience that was medically related for my resume, but also offered immersion into a different culture. My month long program consisted of shadowing within the Cardio-thoracic department at Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town. The doctors were all very enthusiastic and willing to work with us throughout the duration of our stay. I am definitely planning on returning to Cape Town for their shadowing opportunities as well as the awesome activities within the city. There was so much to do! It seemed like I could not experience everything the city had to offer in a month.

Living Situation: I shared an apartment with another medical student. It was very clean and offered maid service every day but Sunday which made it very nice. I never had to worry about cleaning or buying supplies etc. We also had the option to drop laundry off at the front desk which made life easy.

Pros: I would like to take the time to point out how wonderful Robyn was throughout the duration of the trip. As an individual who has lived in Cape Town for many years, she could answer every question we had and went out of her way to always be accessible. Her assistance alone made the price of Connect 123 worth the money. She helped make special requests possible throughout the trip. For example, we wanted to see community clinics at least once throughout our trip. Within a week, Robyn had everything set up. We ended up completing 3 visits during our trip.

Cons: I'm not sure if our school caused the confusion, but we initially worked with a Connect 123 liaison in their head office(not Cape town). This would have been ok, but it seemed as if several facts got lost in translation. After informing Robyn of the details that she was missing upon arrival, everything ran smoothly. I would suggest working with the liaison within the city you will be traveling in rather than the head office to help eliminate any confusion.

Living and working in Dublin

I spent three months living and working in Dublin and had an amazing time! Connect123 helped me with any questions and problems that occurred before and during my stay - I can only recommend going abroad with one of their programs!

I lived

Once I knew I'd be studying and working abroad in Buenos Aires, I began to envision my time there. I pictured a relaxing summer vacation of sight-seeing and having fun. After three months of living here I can say that my experience has been completely different than what I had imagined.

Living 'on my own' in a different country was challenging. I had to worry about buying groceries, cooking, protecting myself, navigating a huge city, taking my laundry down the street, budgeting my expenses and being successful at my internship. Managing all these responsibilities was tiring, but definitely doable. After a while, my daily routine became second nature.

Whether it was going to a live drawing/jazz event, staying up until 7 am at a boliche, charlando with my colleagues at work, or eating some of the best steak of my life, I began to experience all the great things Buenos Aires had to offer.

My time abroad was not always relaxing and tranquil like I had expected it to be. Instead, it was better because I actually lived in Buenos Aires. I experienced the day-to-day ups and downs- something that would go unnoticed if I was just a tourist. I got to know the sounds, smells, and people of this beautiful city, which allowed me to make the most of this experience.

The experience of a lifetime

Connect 123 gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. I was able to immerse myself in Barcelona's immense culture, as a volunteer, as well as travel around Europe. I made long-lasting friendships with my coworkers, other students from the program and new friends traveling. The volunteer hours through my project made it possible to explore all of what Barcelona has to offer. Connect 123 put my desires first and made sure it was the trip that I desired. I will definitely volunteer through Connect 123 again.

Child life in Cape Town

My experience traveling to South Africa this past summer has been life-changing. Being able to learn by seeing and doing in a culture different from my own has allowed me to grow both personally and professionally; and this has given me many skills and experiences to bring home with me. The Connect-123 team had been absolutely incredible during our time in Cape Town through the guidance, support, and genuine care they displayed to us. I am confident that I will use each and every learning experience in my future ambitions and continue to value these experiences throughout my life. Thank you a million for providing the best possible opportunities for us.
