Greetings from Victoria and welcome to my first blog! My fellow CAPI intern, Erin, has interviewed me on my upcoming placement in South Africa. Please listen to the podcast to find what I am looking forward to, what I hope to gain from this experience, and more!
P.S. check out Erin’s blog. Erin is heading to Japan to work at CITYNET as a program assistant.
Hi, my name is Ariana! I am a fourth year Social Work student with a focus on child welfare and child protection. I am thrilled and grateful to receive the opportunity to be working with Ukulapha Community Outreach Project in South Africa. I currently work with children and teens of various demographics and I am excited to witness and be alongside similar work at Slangspruit Primary School. I am passionate about social justice and advocating for marginalized demographics. I believe that empathy is built by expanding your personal lens and recognizing your own positionality.
I am beyond excited for this experience that will point me in many unknown directions!
